Cheryl Studer also sings the role of Elsa in this 1990 Bayreuth production, staged by none other than noted film director Werner Herzog. The somewhat psychedelic first appearance of Paul Frey as Lohengrin aside (with pulsating green lighting effects), it's a fairly traditional production, well-conducted by Peter Schneider and with much fine singing on display, not least from the chorus in Act Three (Heil König Heinrich!).
