This review is from: Peter Schneider - Wagner: Lohengrin [DVD]  (DVD)
A magnificent production with remarkable stagecraft. The laser effects for the arrival/departure of Lohengrin do not carry over well on DVD because of the interaction of the laser frequency and that of the original recording mechanism, but don't let this detract from a thrilling production. Only if you were privileged to have seen this in the opera house, would you know that the full laser effect is lacking on DVD. The other elements of the staging are terrific with first rate cast: Cheryl Studer looks the part and sings superbly as does Paul Frey; Gabrielle Schnaut exudes evil and malice. A rather static production, with superb groupings and costumes. Full of interest. Highly recommended. Must be the best in an opera house anywhere!
