Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

DG presents the 2016 live recording of Lohengrin at the Dresden State Opera, conducted by Christian Thielemann and starring Piotr Beczala in the title role and Anna Netrebko as Elsa. Beczala’s Lohengrin was deemed “nothing short of spine tingling” by Opera News and ON hailed Netrebko’s performance in her first Wagnerian role as “utterly at home in Wagner’s Romantic universe.”

 A Beautiful Lohengrin August 15, 2017 By D. Doss (Tacoma, WA) See All My Reviews "Beczala and Netrebko are both at their peak and give an outstanding performance. Beczala's Lohengrin was beautifully and emotionally sung. The whole production was well done and the dramatic. I would highly recommend watching this Lohengrin and well worth more than one watch."
