This spring, for two performances on May 11 and 14, Maida Hundeling returns to Covent Garden to sing the role of Telramund’s evil wife Ortrud in David Alden’s acclaimed staging of Wagner’s early masterpiece, Lohengrin. Brandon Jovanovich leads the cast as the mysterious ‘swan knight’ Lohengrin, sent to defend the accused Elsa von Brabant, under the condition that she must never ask his true identity. Jennifer Davis and Kostas Smoriginas will sing Elsa and the wicked Friedrich von Telramund. Jakub Hrůša conducts.
