Wagner: Tristan und Isolde / Polaski, Treleaven, Halfvarson, Struckmann, Braun, Rauch, Vas, Vier, Barcelona Opera - de Billy [3 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

"Polaski is a riveting Isolde. The intensity and focus of her acting are well caught by the cameras, and the role holds no vocal terrors for her. More and more I see her as a successor to Astrid Varnay. Treleaven is also a fine actor. His voice is in better shape than it was for Siegfried or perhaps the role just suits it better He brings wit and intelligence to the normally somber Tristan persona. Isolde is, of course, sharp-witted and articulate, and this Isolde glories in those qualities; but for once there is Tristan who seems capable of appreciating them and responding in kind. I would not want to be without this recording. The singers carry the day with their voices and their acting. I could not imagine a better cast today, and, with an occasional grumble about the placid conductor, I expect to enjoy this recording many times." (257 Minutes, 3 DVDs) -Chakwin
