Tannhäuser 2019


  • Tannhäuser (Valery Gergiev, Tobias Kratzer)

    Tobias Kratzer’s “novel…wrenching” (New York Times) 2019 production of Tannhäuser as a wildly contemporaryparable of art and freedom – with Valery Gergiev making his long-awaited Bayreuth Festival debut – was greeted with a standing ovation and exceptional press acclaim. The young Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen makes her “astonishingly mature” (New York Times) Bayreuth debut as Elisabeth, American heldentenor Stephen Gould exhibits “great dramatic and vocal power in the title role” (Telegraph), and Russian mezzo Elena Zhidkova is the “scene stealing Venus”(Opera Today).
