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

Fanfare, January 2014

This Tristan…has a lot going for it. It’s an attractive production and the audio and video quality are excellent. The conductor knows what he’s doing, orchestral execution is first rate, and most of the singing is quite good.
