Music fragment of Wagner’s Lohengrin | by tenor Daniel Behle and the Chorus of Dutch National Opera

Immerse yourself in this fragment from the opera Lohengrin with Daniel Behle, who sings the role of Lohengrin, and Malin Byström, who sings Elsa. Elsa is caught up in a political conflict and has been accused of the murder of her brother, the heir to the throne. In desperation, she calls on a knight who appeared to her in her dreams (Lohengrin). Suddenly the apparition of her dreams materialises before her and comes to her aid. Love blossoms between the two of them, yet the stranger imposes an unusual condition: Elsa must never ask him his name. But are human beings able to bear such a great mystery?

🎶 tenor Daniel Behle, the Chorus of Dutch National Opera and the Nederlands Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by chief conductor Lorenzo Viotti.
