PHILHARMONIA CHOR WIEN
DEUTSCHES SYMPHONIE-ORCHESTER BERLIN

Conducted by PHILIPPE JORDAN
Directed by NIKOLAUS LEHNHOFF
Set Design by RAIMUND BAUER
Costumes by ANDREA SCHMIDT-FUTTERER

After Nikolaus Lehnhoff’s great success with Parsifal, Lohengrin
and Tristan und Isolde this is his highly acclaimed Tannhäuser
coproduced with De Nederlandse Opera and Festspielhaus
Baden-Baden.
Nikolaus Lehnhoff’s production is based on the Paris version by
Richard Wagner with an extended Venusberg scene and a ballet
very surprisingly choreographed by Amir Hosseinpour and
Jonathan Lunn. The minimalist staging and Raimund Bauer’s
ingenious sets make this a Tannhäuser for our time. The cast
as always with Lehnhoff has nothing to match these days.
An extra feature entitled “Tannhäuser – The Revolutionary”
includes interviews with stage director, conductor and cast as well
as backstage material.

„The Deutsches Symphonieorchester Berlin outdid itself under
Philippe Jordan [...] Camilla Nylund excelled as the chaste Elisabeth,
and Ms. Meier, a musician with deep reserves of force and a gift for
madness, was the perfect Venus.“ New York Times

„Baden-Baden successfully attacks Bayreuth with Tannhäuser ... a noble feast of voices...” FAZ
