Wagner: Rienzi Blu-ray (Toulouse Opera)

Notify me when this product is available:

Wagner's third opera, Rienzi from Toulouse Opera in Blu-ray, is a celebration of love and own heroism that's faced with ecclesiastical oppression and political deception. The culmination of the Roman tribune's well-known prayer to the gods of his fatherland is followed by rioting, further exploring the characteristic themes and colossal energies of the opera.

Jorge Lavelli's production is classic and tasteful, supported by authority that Torsten Kerl brings to the lead role and the expert Wagnerian Pinchas Steinberg.
