With Jonas Kaufmann’s long-awaited role debut as Lohengrin and Anja Harteros as Elsa, Wagner’s epic of love and loss was not only the opening premiere of the Munich Opera Festival, but its uncontested highlight as well. Which is why the performance was followed not only by a long-sold-out house, but also by tens of thousands of spectators at a live public viewing event in Munich and Vienna.

Jonas Kaufmann and Lohengrin are a perfect fit between singer and role. His dark, baritonal timbre and introverted, even aloof personality fit the Wagnerian knight's music like a glove. Likewise, Harteros, who can seem passive and detached when singing Verdi roles is wonderful as Elsa. Her voice has a soft-grained quality that sounds youthful and naive. Weird seeing Wagner's Lohengrin in modern dress and seemingly set in the 1920's, once you get used to it that really doesn't matter because with any Wagner operas what matters is the music and the singing, in this version the singing is totally superb, Jonas Kaufmann as has been said before is the successor to Jon Vickers, he is the.

Richard Jones’s radical new production 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 wonderfu. .With striking costumes and designs by Ultz -and directed by Maestro Kent Nagano - it represents a bold new Lohengrin for today’s world.
Jones strips the work of any of its conventional trappings: there is not a hint of 10th Century Brabant, there are no knights in armour and there is a swan but no boat. When the curtain rises we see Elsa designing a house, the symbol of her dreams for the future, and the house is the key metaphor of the staging. But it’s Kaufmann and Harteros that I’ll be returning to for the marvellous singing and intelligent stagecraft which reinforce the infinite depth of Wagner’s great dramas in which each generation can find something new. – Simon Thompson, MusicWeb International.

Friedrich von Telramund. Heerrufer des Königs. Bayerisches Staatsorchester. Chorus and extra chorus of the Bayerische Staatsoper. To List of Performances. Seit 2006 ist Kent Nagano zudem Musikdirektor des Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, seit 2013 auch Erster Gastdirigent der Göteborger Symphoniker. I took it for granted that this production would be set in the present, since it is by Richard Jones. But I had hardly bargained for his imagination running to this degree of strangeness. During the Prelude, that glorious static vision of the Grail, we see Elsa, in dungarees, aided by workmen, laying bricks (convincingly), building her own house, her refuge. Lohengrin strolls in, wearing a T-shirt, trackies and trainers, and offers to help.
