Bayreuth Festival Chorus and Orchestra
Christian Thielemann conductor
Recording from Bayreuth Festival,2018
Directed by Yuval Sharon
A memorable performance. For the first time in Bayreuth Festival’s history, Polish singers performed: Piotr Beczała in the title part and Tomasz Konieczny specialising in Wagner.
Opinions of those who saw the performance live varied. It is all the more worth seeing its recording to form your own opinion about it.
