This 1961 production features the great American singer, Grace Bumbry, one of the leading sopranos and mezzo-sopranos of her generation.

Wagner’s famous romantic opera is concerned with the struggle between sacred and profane love and redemption – a theme which runs through most of the composer’s mature work and brilliantly portrayed here.

Under the direction of esteemed German conductor, Wolfgang Sawallisch, the Chor und Orchester der Bayreuther Festspiele rises beautifully to the demands of this piece and plays in tandem with the singers to give a memorable performance.

Sung by a notable cast over 50 years ago, this recording proves to be a classic album worthy of any collection of great opera.
