Friday Night at the Opera - 10/28/11 - Wagner: Lohengrin


Lohengrin is a romantic opera in three acts composed and written by Richard Wagner, first performed in 1850. The story of character is taken from medieval German romance, notably the Parzival of Wolfram von Eschenbach and its sequel, Lohengrin, written by a different author, itself inspired by the epic of Garin le Loherain. It is part of the Knight of the Swan tradition.

The most popular and recognizable part of the opera is the Bridal Chorus, better known as "Here Comes the Bride", often played as a processional at weddings in the West. This 1971 recording stars James King and Gundula Janowitz. Rafael Kubelik conducts.
