The outstanding tenor Piotr Beczala sings the Swan Knight, sent by heaven to defend pure, innocent Elsa (Camilla Nylund), against the evil slander of Telramund (Tomasz Konieczny) and his wicked wife, Ortrud (Nina Stemme). But how can Elsa truly trust her hero, if she’s forbidden to even ask his name or where he comes from? Omer Meir Wellber leads the Vienna State Opera orchestra and chorus.

Richard Wagner (1813–83) was one of the most significant figures in the history of opera. His works transformed the course of Western music, either by extension of his discoveries or reaction against them.

Wagner controlled all aspects of his theatrical works, writing both the music and the librettos of his operas, giving instructions for scenic design, staging, and action, and conducted most of their premieres. His aesthetic ideal was what he called a Gesamtkunstwerk (“total work of art”), meaning a work in which all art forms are united in the service of drama.

Wagner drew inspiration for his opera Lohengrin from a German version of a legend widely known in variant forms from the European Middle Ages onward.
