SF Opera in Wagner's "Lohengrin"
Tune in at noon as the San Francisco Opera performs Wagner's most accessible opera, Lohengrin, which contrasts the lust for power with the search for faith. The title role is sung by Brandon Jovanovich, "a first-rate Wagner tenor"; his doubt-plagued bride is sung by Camilla Nylund,"evoking an affecting degree of dreamy distance in Elsa's account of her mysterious savior" (Gramophone).
