Elsa’s brother Gottfried has disappeared. Her prayers for a champion are answered by the appearance of the mysterious Swan Knight. But the malicious Telramund and his sorceress wife Ortrud convince Elsa to ask the knight’s name – a question that will force him to leave her.
Lohengrin marks a turning point as Wagner moves from conventional operatic form to the music dramas of his mature style - a work of fervent music imagination and great dramatic power.
