The legendary Plácido Domingo is an achingly romantic Lohengrin, his golden-toned tenor bringing to life Wagner’s swan knight of ancient legend. He stars opposite the irresistible Anna Tomowa-Sintow as Elsa, the young woman wrongly accused of killing her brother. Eva Marton gives a tour-de-force performance as the evil Ortrud, and Donald McIntyre is Telramund, her scheming husband. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus.
