Lohengrin has a reputation as Wagner’s most accessible, grandly romantic opera. It is arguably his saddest as well, reflecting an irreconcilable conflict between the utopian and the actual. Daniel Barenboim once again proves himself among the most astute of today’s Wagnerians by tapping into this opera’s uniqueness.
