Jakob Lenz receives rave reviews

Reading time: 1 min. Wolfgang Rihm

With the Süddeutsche Zeitung calling it a “stroke of genius”, BR Klassik writing about a “revelation” and Deutschlandfunk remembering a “perfect evening at the opera”, Andrea Breth’s production of Wolfgang Rihm’s Jakob Lenz at the Opera Stuttgart with a terrific Georg Nigl in the title role – is both a critical and commercial success.
