Synopses & Reviews
"Of all operas, perhaps the one that least needs ingenious extra musical assistance is Tristan und Isold, this aurally erotic work that speaks so vividly to the listener's inner eye. Wagner's score is simply more illustrative and sensuously pictorial than any series of stage pictures could be. This production with the Deutsche Oper Berlin stars René Kollo and Gwyneth Jones in the title roles. The program represents a historical milestone and document of highest value in the reception of Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde."
