Description

Richard Jones's radical new prodcution of Lohengrin was the talk of the 2009 Munich Festival. It was also a triumph for Jonas Kaufmann in the title role - 'the finest heldentenor since Jon Vickers' (La Scena Musicale). Die Welt added that they 'could not think of any cast more perfectly matched, so youthfully enthralling, in short: so wonderful...'. With striking costumes and designs by Ultz - and directed by Maestro Kent Nagano - it represents a bold new Lohengrin for today's world.
