A new production from Festspielhaus Baden-Baden With powerful conviction, Nikolaus Lehnhoff interprets Wagner's Lohengrin as the dramatic struggle of masculine and feminine, revenge and compassion. Powerfully acted, almost like a Strindberg play, and musically of the highest order, this Lohengrin from the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden will be a benchmark production for decades.

With his extraordinarily transparent interpretation of the title role, Klaus Florian Vogt leads an inspired cast to visionary realms that are rarely touched, let alone captured on High Definition film and in pure surround sound. The monumental sets by Stephan Braunfels and Kent Nagano's sublimely well-balanced musical interpretation complete a deeply moving total-theatre experience.

This production has reunited stage director Nikolaus Lehnhoff and the conductor Kent Nagano who collaborated in Baden-Baden's Parsifal two years ago also released on Opus Arte (OA 0915 D)

Monumental set design by architect Stephan Braunfels who has won recognition for his designs of buildings in Berlin and Munich
