American tenor and Wagner veteran Brandon Jovanovich stars as the title role in San Francisco Opera’s production of Lohengrin. Wagner’s romantic opera tells the story of a desperate woman whose troubles are solved by a mysterious knight. But royal usurpers and harrowing curses challenge their love, ultimately complicating the fairytale.

Finnish soprano Camilla Nylund stars as Elsa von Brabant, the duchess in need of a savior. German bass-baritone Gerd Grochowski and mezzo-soprano Petra Lang sing the roles of the story’s antagonists. Nicola Luisotti conducts the production, his first Wagner opera at San Francisco Opera. Watch a video preview below.
