WAGNER, R.: Tristan und Isolde (Deutsche Oper Berlin, 1993) (NTSC) 102317
WAGNER, R.: Tristan und Isolde (Deutsche Oper, Berlin, 1993) (Blu-ray, HD) 108083

This 1993 Tristan is marked by solid professionalism. It features a cast of veteran Wagnerians, all performing with consummate authority. Götz Friedrich’s production offers a solid, straightforward take on the opera; the forces of Deutsche Oper Berlin…perform expertly under the sure baton of Jiří Kout. It would be easy to regard this performance as simply a display of sturdy competence, but ultimately it becomes something more: its seriousness of approach allows Tristan itself to emerge in its transcendent glory. © 2014 Opera News Read complete review
