Summary

Summary

Richard Wagner's opera Lohengrin is interpreted by the Chorus and Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera, under the direction of Claudio Abbado. Cheryl Studer plays Elsa of Brabant, who is accused of murder by Frederick of Telramund (Hartmut Welker). Lohengrin (Placido Domingo) saves her and asks her to marry him. Meanwhile, Frederick and his wife, Ortrud (Dunja Vejzovic), plot against their union, leading up to the performance of the famous composition "Wedding March." Robert Lloyd also stars as King Henry. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
