Through the years, the Royal Swedish Opera has fostered a line of world-class Wagner singers (Birgit Nilsson, Gösta Winbergh, Nina Stemme and Katarina Dalayman, etc). This time two younger generation singers, who already have entered on international careers, perform the parts of Lohengrin and Elsa. Lohengrin is Michael Weinius, first prize winner of the prestigious Seattle Opera International Wagner competition in 2008, while Emma Vetter, who has won the Wagner competition Neue Stimmen, sings Elsa. König Heinrich: Matthew Best.
