This year, we are proud to release the new production of Tannhäuser which was premiered on 26 July 2019 and presented the long awaited Bayreuth debut of star conductor Valery Gergiev, as well as the house debut of young soprano star Lise Davidsen. Tobias Kratzer’s staging presented Tannhäuser as a wildly contemporary parable of art and freedom which was praised as “novel” and “wrenching” (New York Times) and received exceptional press acclaim. Lise Davidsen’s Elisabeth (“beautifully lyrical”, Telegraph) was as much acclaimed as heldentenor Stephen Gould’s Tannhäuser, who exhibited “great dramatic and vocal power in the title role” (Telegraph). They were joined by mezzo soprano Elena Zhidkova’s Venus (“scene stealing”, according to Opera Today), baritone Markus Eiche’s Wolfram and Stephen Milling’s Landgraf.
