From the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona: "Tannhäuser" by Richard Wagner (1813-1883). Conductor: Sebastian Weigle - Stage director: Robert Carsen. With Peter Seiffert (Tannhäuser), Petra Maria Schnitzer (Elisabeth), Günther Groissböck (Hermann), Béatrice Uria Monzon (Venus), Markus Eiche (Wolfram von Eschenbach), Stefan Margita (Walther von der Vogelweide). Noted Canadian director Robert Carsen has transported the work to our time and incorporates the whole theater in his production: he turns the Wartburg into a chic big-city art gallery, the work's "Minnesänger" into painters and and lets the gallery's opening-night guests stroll down the Liceu's central aisle.
