4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and vibrant modern setting, 2 April 2008
This review is from: Wagner: Tristan und Isolde [DVD] [1998] [2000] (DVD)
Don't be put off by the dreary cover: it's taken from just about the only instant in the opera that's visually dull. The photo is out of focus too. You'd think they could find a better photo!

I enjoyed the cheeky charm and vibrancy of this modern setting, especially the cruise ship in act 1! Costumes are good and Isolde in particular is a very attractive Isolde, though the last scene zooms in much too close to the extent that you can see her tongue is blue. On the subject of the last scene, I thought it would have been better if Tristan actually looked dead, but never mind.

Sound quality is fine and picture is sharp apart from some short bits of blur on close-ups. It's the only Tristan DVD in my collection and I don't feel the need to get another.
