Wagner: Tannhäuser DVD (Bayreuther Festspiele)

Götz Friedrich's 1970s production scandalized the Bayreuth old guard while revealing Tannhäuser’s revolutionary qualities to a new age of Wagner lovers. ‘Davis’s conducting is nothing short of magnificent, while the singing is truly on a festival level’ – New York Daily News. ‘The performances throughout are superb… Jones is stunningly effective’ – New York Times. ‘Jürgen Rose’s beautiful settings… an excellent introduction to a new approach to Wagner's world’ – Le Quotidien de Paris.
