Nikolaus Lehnhoff: a tribute

Posted On

We are very sad to hear Nikolaus Lehnhoff has passed away.
He famously directed a trilogy of Janáček operas here in the late 1980s and 1990s, Kat’a Kabanova, Jenufa and The Makropulos Case. He also directed Glyndebourne’s first ever Wagner opera, Tristan und Isolde in 2003 to great acclaim.
He will be missed by all who worked with him.

–Gus Christie, Executive Chairman, Glyndebourne
