Why Go: To see an iconic operatic love story

Richard Wagner’s romantic opera, Lohengrin will be performed by the Greek National Opera with a full musical ensemble, directed by award-winning British director, Anthony McDonald.

The story in short:

Written over three acts, an unknown knight comes to the rescue of an accused Elsa von Brabant. While Elsa appears to have found happiness, dark forces conspire against her. The knight’s mission is to prove Elsa’s innocence.

The plot inspired Wagner to write some of the best-known pages in musical history including the renowned wedding march at the beginning of Act III.
