Wonderful interpretation of a marvelous cast
Lohengrin is one of the most beautiful Richard Wagner's masterpieces. The story of the knight that cannot tell his name and origin, brought by a swan to defend the honor of Elza, who is being falsely accused of killing her brother, is a very beautiful tale of individuality and liberation. This version of this opera is wonderful, the interpretation of the cast is marvelous. Although being more than three and half hours long divided in three acts, the viewer does not get tired or bored. One remark is one of the viewer in the theater that coughs all the time. Further, in the second act, the Brazilian DVD has a lack of synchronization between the movement of the lips and sound. Fortunately the subtitles are very well synchronized with no delay the whole opera. My vote is ten.
Title (Brazil): "Lohengrin"
