Ben Heppner is the Knight of the Holy Grail, sent by heaven to defend pure, innocent Elsa (Deborah Voigt), against the evil slander of Telramund (Hans-Joachim Ketelsen) and his wicked wife. Ortrud (Deborah Polaski). But how can Elsa truly trust her hero, if she's forbidden to even ask his name or where he comes from? Wagner's colorful music blazes under James Levine's conducting, and the Met orchestra and chorus are a thrilling part of the storytelling. This is shimmering Romanticism at its best

Helden by Klaus Florian Vogt( Recording )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beinahe wäre diese Stimme ungehört geblieben. Ihr Besitzer war nämlich Hornist bei den Hamburger Philharmonikern und fühlte sich im Orchestergraben recht wohl. Zum Glück für die Opernwelt wurde Klaus Florian Vogts Tenor aber bei einer Geburtstagsfeier entdeckt und nach einigem Hin und Her studierte der Holsteiner dann parallel zu seinem Orchesterjob Gesang. Heute ist er der beste jugendliche Heldentenor deutscher Sprache. Keiner singt Wagner - und bei dem landet man als Vertreter dieses Stimmfachs unweigerlich - so absolut mühelos, entspannt, selbstverständlich. Sein Ansatz ist stets lyrisch, hohe Töne bindet er so unauffällig und unangestrengt in die Gesangslinie ein, dass man sie kaum als solche wahrnimmt. Bei Klaus Florian Vogt kann man sich einfach zurücklehnen und eine durch und durch gesunde Stimme genießen, man muss nie Angst haben, auch nicht im 3. Akt einer Wagner-Oper, wo ja bekanntlich die großen Herausforderungen auf die Tenorhelden warten. Nicht nur in Bayreuth hat er damit klargemacht, dass er als Stolzing und Lohengrin ohne Konkurrenz ist. In diesen beiden Partien ist er natürlich auch auf diesem längst überfälligen Recital zu hören. Ergänzt wird das Programm durch Arien von Weber, Lortzing, Flotow und Korngold sowie einen makellos lyrischen Tamino" (Rondo)
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Visual )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international cast is led by Robert Dean Smith as Tristan, Iréne Theorin as Isolde and includes Robert Holl, Jukka Rasilainen, Ralf Lukas, Michelle Breedt, Clemens Bieber, Arnold Bezuyen and Martin Snell together with the Bayreuth Festival Chorus and Orchestra. Bayreuth Festival is the most renowned festival for operas by German composer Richard Wagner held each summer. Richard Wagner himself designed and built the 'Festspielhaus', an opera house intended just to play a specific choice of his works during the Festival. It opened on 13 August 1876 with the first performance of the whole Ring presenting the local premieres of Das Rheingold and Die Walküre and world premieres of Siegfried and Götterdämmerung. Wagner's Festival ideal in general was closely bound up with the genesis of his principal work, Der Ring des Nibelungen. The composer's reflections on a fundamental reform of existing theatrical conditions finally led him to sketch out the idea of a festival, an idea that continued to obsess him throughout his whole life. A United Motion Production on behalf of BF Medien GmbH in association with Opus Arte.--Kanopy
