On April 9 and 18, Eric Cutler will reprise the title role in Wagner’s Lohengrin at the prestigious Salzburg Easter Festival. This new production, co-produced with Vienna State Opera, has been envisioned by Jossi Wieler and Sergio Morabito and is set to be remounted in Vienna State Opera’s 2023-2024 season.
Sharing the stage with Mr. Cutler will be Hans-Peter König as Heinrich der Vogler, Jacquelyn Wagner as Elsa von Brabant, Martin Gantner as Friedrich von Telramund, Elena Pankratova as Ortrud and Markus Brück as Der Heerrufer. Staatskapelle Dresden and a trio of choirs (Dresden State Opera Choir, Salzburg Bach Choir, Salzburg State Theater Choir) will also appear under the baton of Christian Thielemann, who will finish his tenure as Artistic Director of the festival this year.
A radio broadcast will occur on Saturday April 9 at 19:30 on Ö1.
