Festspielorchester Bayreuth Wagner - Lohengrin - Live At Bayreuth Festival Blu-Ray




After Tristan und Isolde ( 2016), Parsifal ( 2017) and Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg (2018) this is the fourth installment of the exclusive, multiyear partnership between Deutsche Grammophon and the Bayreuth Festival, in which the Yellow Label is the exclusive audio-visual partner of the mythical Wagner festival, releasing each edition's new production on Blu-ray.

This year, we are proud to release on Blu-ray the celebrated production of Lohengrin which was premiered on 25 July 2018, featuring an illustrious cast including Piotr Beczala and Anja Harteros in their house debuts, as well as the acclaimed return of Waltraud Meier to the Bayreuth Festival. Christian Thielemann, Music Director of the Bayreuth Festival, proved again his qualities as a unique Wagner conductor in a staging by Yuval Sharon, "one of the most interesting arrivals on the musical landscape" (Opernwelt), and with the much anticipated stage and costume designs by painters Neo Rauch and Rosa Loy.

The New York Times praised Piotr Beczala’s Lohengrin as "outstanding", Anja Harteros [making] her impressive Bayreuth debut" as Elsa, and Ortrud "played with dominant presence by the incomparable Waltraud Meier". The distinguished artists Neo Rauch and Rosa Loy created "breathtaking visuals", and the whole performance was guided with "enthralling musicality" by conductor Christian Thielemann.
