About Wagner's Lohengrin

Wagner’s soaring masterpiece makes its triumphant return to the Met stage after 17 years. In a sequel to his revelatory production of Parsifal, director François Girard unveils an atmospheric staging that once again weds his striking visual style and keen dramatic insight to Wagner’s breathtaking music, with Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to conduct a supreme cast led by tenor Piotr Beczała in the title role of the mysterious swan knight. Sopranos Tamara Wilson and Elena Stikhina, as the virtuous duchess Elsa, falsely accused of murder, go head-to-head with soprano Christine Goerke as the cunning sorceress Ortrud, who seeks to lay her low. Bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin is Ortrud’s power-hungry husband, Telramund, and bass Günther Groissböck is King Heinrich.

World premiere: Großherzogliches Hoftheater, Weimar, 1850 Lohengrin stands at the epicenter of Richard Wagner’s career—chronologically, thematically, and artistically. It is a Romantic-era reimagining of a persistent Medieval legend about a mystical knight who champions an oppressed maiden on the sole condition that she never ask his name, and the issues at stake range from the spiritual (the role of the divine in human lives) to the political (nation building in times of transition and migration) to the deeply personal (the centrality of mystery in erotic attraction). The wide thematic divergence within the story spurred Wagner to create a score that triumphantly covers all bases, breathtaking in its sweeping variety, yet approachable and theatrically effective.

Musically as good as it gets, Star power

See it if Wagner is your thing -- this production satisfies on many levels.

Don’t see it if German opera ain't your thing, or 4.5 hours (including two half-hour intermissions) is a daunting concept to you.

Mesmerizing staging, Majestic music, Powerful chorus

See it if you like Wagner and enjoy a huge cast on stage, with a memorable production that uses bold colors and cosmic images to enhance the scenes.

Don’t see it if you're not used to(or have the patient for) "Wagner time".At 4.5 hours, Act I & 2nd half of Act III are exciting,not a lot happens inbetween
