Synopsis

When King Heinrich of Saxony arrives at Brabant castle, Telramund and his wife, the pagan princess Ortrud, tell the king a lie. They state that Elsa has murdered her brother, Gottfried, in order to inherit his money. Luckily, a knight in shining armor comes to save Elsa. However, does this only on the condition that she never asks his identity. The Knight and Elsa soon fall in love. However, on their wedding night, she makes the mistake of asking his identity. This question breaks a spell that allowed him to remain at Brabant with her. Lohengrin now must return to the Grail but promises that Gottfried will return.
