Lohengrin – experience the legend.
Our re-imagination of the lost orchestration from the 1850 Weimar premier conducted by Franz Liszt will introduce New Mexico audiences to Wagner’s surprisingly intimate masterpiece for an epic close to the season. The genius of Wagner’s romantic take on the Knight of the Swan’s tale goes well beyond the familiar Act III Prelude (popularly known as “Here Comes the Bride”). Don’t miss the chance to see Corey Bix, Michelle Johnson, and Sean Anderson take on New Mexico’s very first Lohengrin. Maestro Anthony Barrese conducts.
