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
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
