Best Tristan und Isolde available. Triumph!
18 March 2018
Simply magnificent, beautifully and passionately sung, and Patrice Chereau again does not let me down but designs and directs having read and understood the libretto, unlike so many producers of opera these days. Barenboim gets the very best out of the La Scala orchestra, and Meier is easily the best Isolde I have seen. Like another reviewer I made the mistake of going to the ENO production where the Isolde just couldn’t sing it, and the production was so bad I left halfway through. This production is simply wonderful, with no weakness, whatsoever. I can’t even complain about the télévision direction either. Beautiful Blu Ray images and sound.
