It is a credit to soprano Luana DeVol that she makes an engaging, human character of the somewhat abstract Empress--and that she communicates effectively through the heavy, white makeup. From her fluttering, flighty entrance, she walks a complicated path. This is a tough role, made more difficult in that the Empress is mostly mute in the second act. At the climax (in a temple before the rapidly petrifying body of her husband) displaying power and resolve in that spoken monologue, which earns her the shadow and reunites the four couples for an ensemble climaxing in a glorious unision high C.

AKT-1....... Akt-2.......Akt-3

Making her Met debut well into her career, the American soprano Luana DeVol sang Ortrud. She sang with fiery abandon and cut through the orchestra with slicing high notes. Despite some hammy Cruella DeVil moments, she bravely embraced the concept and was a wonderfully malevolent presence.

........New York Times, 2006

Not to be outdone, soprano Karita Mattila as Elsa, Lohengrin’s love interest, and soprano Luana DeVol, Telramun’s conniving wife, each gave astounding performances in demanding roles that required lengthy stage time, unnatural bodily contortions and stage movements thanks to Wilson’s ego, and adherence to a score that requires unbelievable stamina to complete.
