To celebrate KQED’s Opera Month, we are thrilled to offer vouchers for a pair of orchestra tickets to San Francisco Opera’s stunning new production of Wagner’s Lohengrin. Your voucher allows you to select from performances on Wednesday, October 31 or Saturday, November 3.
The prayers of a desperate woman are answered in the form of a noble warrior in Wagner's most accessible opera, which contrasts the lust for power with the search for faith. The title role is sung by Brandon Jovanovich, "a first-rate Wagner tenor" (San Francisco Chronicle) who was an electrifying Siegmund in Die Walküre (2011). As his doubt-plagued bride, soprano Camilla Nylund "evokes an affecting degree of dreamy distance in Elsa's account of her mysterious savior" (Gramophone).
