Jonas Kaufmann (Lohengrin) Anja Harteros (Elsa) Wolfgang Koch (Telramund) Michaela Schuster (Ortrud)Christof Fischesser (Konig Heinrich) Evgeny Nikitin (Herald)Bayerisches Staatsorchester Kent NaganoStage direction: Richard Jones 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 wonderful...". With striking costumes and designs by Ultz -and directed by Maestro Kent Nagano - it represents a bold new Lohengrin for today's world.
