After the acclaimed productions of Nikolaus Lehnhoff's Parsifal, Lohengrin and Tristan und Isolde, the director returns with a new production success, Tannhäuser.
The production of Nikolaus Lehnhoff is based on the Paris version by Richard Wagner, including a long scene in the Venusberg and very surprising choreography by Amir Hosseinpour and Jonathan Lunn. The minimalist staging and ingenious decorations Raimund Bauer make Tannhäuser worthey of the 21th century. As always, the cast chosen by Lehnhoff remains unparalleled.
Through the comments of Nikolaus Lehnhoff, Philippe Jordan, Amir Hosseinpour et al., The documentary depicts the persona Tannhaüser embodied. Young and spirited, both metaphorical of the victim and provocative, loving to play with extremes, Tannhaüser has experienced an extreme form of love and clumsily seeks Elisabeth's true love.
