18:00 Lohengrin
Opera in three acts by Richard Wagner. Conductor: Evan Rogister. Stage Director: Fran?ois Girard. Dramaturge: Serge Lamothe. Sung in German. Sitting under the tree of justice, King Heinrich explains to the people the dangers that threaten the peace and unity of the German Empire. He questions Telramund on the reasons for division within the duchy of Brabant. The count accuses Elsa, the duchess of Brabant, of having murdered her own brother, the young duke Godfrey, heir to the throne. He insinuates that Elsa acted with the complicity of a secret lover to seize power. The King summons the accused. Elsa, dreamy, appears dressed in white. For any defense, she evokes a dream in which a virtuous knight came to comfort her. She asks for the protection of this knight. It is he, she says, who must face Count Telramund in a battle whose outcome will clear her name. The King's Herald makes an appeal, then another, which remain unanswered. Elsa begins to pray fervently. A digital certificate (a QR-code) is required to enter.
