Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( Visual )

1 edition published in 1986 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's Romantic opera demands singing actors who can truly inhabit their parts, and that's just what we have here. Is it possible for a Knight of the Holy Grail to look more enticing than Peter Hofmann? No wonder Elsa (Eva Marton) falls in love at first sight. Marton's heroine is innocent, but she is also a passionate, real-life young woman--which is good, because Leonie Rysanek is positively demented as Ortrud, the sorceress who accuses Elsa and Lohengrin of using magic. With James Levine's superb conducting, the orchestra and chorus are similarly magical
Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( Recording )

1 edition published in 1983 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This broadcast of Wagner's most romantic opera stars René Kollo as the knight of the Holy Grail who arrives in a boat pulled by a swan to defend the innocent Elsa, played by Pilar Lorengar. Mignon Dunn is the dark and malevolent Ortrud who poisons the couple's happiness, with some help from her husband, Telramund (Donald McIntyre). James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between
