A production photo of the VIctoria State Opera, Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner from 1989 in the State Theatre, Melbourne directed by Richard Cottrell. The cast included Australians, Anthony Roden, Peter Coleman-Wright, Eilene Hannan, Lisa Gasteen, Glenn Winslade, American Bass-Baritone Greg Ryerson and the great New Zealand Bass, Noel Mangin.
The set design by Kenneth Rowell was a typically stunning creation by one of Australia’s most famous designers. Ably conducted by VSO long time musical director, Richard Divall this production, performed following the Paris version, was one one of the great successes of the 1989 season.
