Notes & Reviews:
In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Tristan und Isolde this production was premiered on July 25, 2015 and marked the high-point of last year's Bayreuth Festival. Staged by the composer's great-granddaughter, Katharina Wagner, the production includes such noted singers as Stephen Gould, Evelyn Herlitzius, Georg Zeppenfelds and Iain Paterson as well as the magisterial conducting of Christian Thielemann. This production will be presented six times this coming summer.
With Evelyn Herlitzius as the perfect Isolde, singing with precision and ardour right up to the end, and Stephen Gould as Tristan, sovereign master of his murderously difficult role, as impressive for refinement as for power in the strenuous last act.... Wagner authority Christian Thielemann conducted with an elegance and precision that is probably unsurpassable today.
