Kasper Holten’s Lohengrin opens in Berlin
Wings and nighties all present and correct. Tonight is the premiere of Kasper Holten’s first production since he became Director of Opera at Covent Garden – but it’s not in London.
The Deutsche Oper Berlin’s Lohengrin features in the title role Klaus Florian Vogt, who stepped in at late notice to replace Marco Jentzsch. Ricarda Merbeth is Elsa, Petra Lang is Ortrud, Gordon Hawkins is Telramund and Albert Dohmen is Heinrich. More photos below.
