Tristan in Cardiff

My review of Tristan und Isolde in Cardiff, with Ben Heppner as Tristan and Ann Petersen as Isolde is here on the OperaToday website.

'To a certain extent the virtues of Kokkos’s production are negative, in that it does not get in the way of the music and Kokkos does not try to re-make the work in his own image. But where a company can afford to revive Tristan und Isolde only rarely, and when many of the audience may be seeing it for the first time, this clarity of style can become a positive virtue.' more
