    “A real feast of music! Where to begin, where to end with praise for this Tannhäuser at the Berlin Staatsoper in the Schillertheater? It sounds the way one has always dreamt of it but all too rarely heard it...It is with nuance and fine balance that Richard Wagner’s music now rises from the orchestra pit, borne aloft by brilliant singers. Peter Seiffert in particular as Tannhäuser celebrates a true triumph..”
    Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

    "Staged by choreographer Sasha Waltz on a fantastic stage by Pia Maier Schriever with a circular tunnel of light in the manner of Hieronymus Bosch, the Berlin Tannhäuser deserves to be described as 'world-class'"
