About the performance

The premiere of the opera Lohengrin was held on the 28th of August 1850 in Weimar. It was conducted by Ferencz Liszt, Wagner’s close friend. It was he who had contributed to the staging of the opera, completed two years earlier. Wagner could not be present at the event: his stormy social temperament led him to the barricades of the German revolution in 1848–1849, after which, thanks to a happy coincidence, he found a shelter in Switzerland using false documents and was there on the day of the premiere. While sitting in one of the hotels in Lucerne and watching at the clock, the composer tried to time the performance…

Premiered on February 24, 2022.

Synopsis

Act I

On the banks of the Scheldt near Antwerp.

Scene 1

Sitting under the tree of justice, King Heinrich explains to the people the dangers that threaten the peace and unity of the German Empire. He questions Telramund on the reasons for division within the duchy of Brabant. The count accuses Elsa, the duchess of Brabant, of having murdered her own brother, the young duke Godfrey, heir to the throne. He insinuates that Elsa acted with the complicity of a secret lover to seize power. The King summons the accused.
