Wagners tale of the struggle between spiritual and profane love, and of redemption through love, is given a radical visual update in Sebastian Baumgartens controversial yet thought-provoking Bayreuth production. Joep van Lieshouts giant installation The Technocrat dominates the stage, its industrial interior giving credence to the idea that Tannhäuser is one big experiment and playing host to some magnificent performances, among them Torsten Kerls robust interpretation of the title role and Camilla Nylunds wonderfully empathetic Elisabeth. - Sebastian Baumgartens controversial production from 2011, recorded in 2014. - Conducted by Axel Kober, music director of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Düsseldorf /Duisburg - Extra features: Interviews with Sebastian Baumgarten, Axel Kober, Eberhard Friedrich, Torsten Kerl, Camilla Nylund, Short films: Stage technique, Make-up etc a Cast Gallery. Camilla Nylunds Elisabeth and Kwangchul Youns Landgraf deservedly received the most applause at the curtain calls. Bachtrack
