Andante

“The intimacy and urgency [Peter Konwitschny] conjures simply cannot be described: Opera has never been so literally in-your-face.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2007

“Three-quarters of Peter Konwitschny's Lohengrin plays in a secondary school room… Lohengrin is a pop-star-like saviour greeted with swooning adulation by teddy-bear clutching schoolgirls. Intensely acted, and sung, by all the principals, Konwitschny's approach illuminates and exposes Wagner's contrasting tale of local political squabbles, idealised love, chauvinist behaviour and compromised solutions on every level. ...a vital contemporary staging of the work.”
