From the 2018 Bayreuth Festival, the New York Times praised the acclaimed new production by American director Yuval Sharon for several reasons: "the outstanding Piotr Beczala" as Lohengrin, "Anja Harteros [making] her impressive Bayreuth debut" as Elsa, and Ortrud "played with dominant presence by the incomparable Waltraud Meier". The distinguished artists Neo Rauch and Rosa Loy created "breathtaking visuals", and the whole performance was guided with “enthralling musicality" by conductor Christian Thielemann.
