Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed director Werner Herzog stages Richard Wagner’s classic opera, 'Lohengrin' in a lavish production filmed at the famed Bayreuth Opera House, with Peter Schneider conducting the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra. The medieval romance of the Swan Knight, who comes miraculously to the rescue of the falsely accused Elsa of Brabant, became one of Richard Wagner’s most beloved operas. This production features an all-star cast including Cheryl Studer as Elsa and Paul Frey as Lohengrin, as well as Gabriele Schnaut, Ekkehard Wlaschiha and Manfred Schenk.
