This exciting modern-day adaptation of Tannhauser, Richard Wagner's fable of love and redemption, features one of the great Wagner singers of our time in the lead role, Peter Seiffert. Using the magnificent space of Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu in its entirety, renowned Canadian director Robert Carsen has transformed this mythic narration of medieval troubadours into a compelling and at times very amusing tale that plays out in a world of contemporary painters and art dealers. Features a fantastic cast, conducted by the Liceu's principal conductor Sebastian Weigle, a Wagner specialist.
"Peter Seiffert ruled the stage as the troubled artist. His duet with Elizabeth and his Rome narration were emotionally potent." Opera News"His Elizabeth (and real-life wife), Petra Maria Schnitzer, produced a fresh, creamy tone and soared excitingly over orchestra and chorus in Act II." Opera News
