After earning rave reviews for his accounts of Lohengrin in Birmingham and Bayreuth, Andris Nelsons now turns his baton to the greatest operatic love story of them all. An outstanding cast of singers joins the CBSO to unleash the passion of this timeless story of illicit love, jealousy, death and transfiguration.
‘Nelsons’s vital control of every element left the biggest impression. Hearing that score in the marvellous Symphony Hall acoustic – with the CBSO on top form – was a sumptuous treat.’ The Guardian on Lohengrin
