Notes & Reviews:

"This is the most powerful 'Tristan' I've seen on DVD. The singing, acting, conducting, playing, and directing all work toward a unified whole... Barenboim's prelude is so intense and so gorgeously played that the drama that follows almost seems like an afterthought. He is a superb partner in the big monologs in the outer acts and creates a lovely cushion of sound, suddenly arid, in the second. He moves things along and, though his orchestra sounds a little short of strings, keeps the sound rich and rounded. And then there is the interplay of light and dark both in the music and on stage, compellingly caught on the DVD... Whatever 'Tristan' you have, this is a fine supplement." -American Record Guide
