The Critical Acclaim Continues for “Tristan”

by Suzanne Calvin

If you haven’t read all the initial reviews, please scroll down in order to do so. But it’s incredibly gratifying to be able to report that the applause hasn’t stopped, and rave reviews for our new production of Wagner’s transcendent masterpiece continue to pour in. The latest? From Mark-Brian Sonna at “Pegasus News” who writes:

“To describe this new technique in theatre is nearly impossible. It has to be seen and experienced to fully comprehend it. If this is the new direction for stage design, I welcome it. It gives the director and the designer the ability to create anything conceivable. You want to see the stage explode in a fireball? It can be done, and it does happen in Tristan & Isolde.

“To be able to work such a technological complexity into a production requires the imagination and the acute staging of a master director and Christian Rath truly comprehends the power of this new technology. There wasn’t one false moment in staging. It also requires him to push his performers to a level of performance that can compete with this visual wizardry and the performances given by the singers were stunning. Regardless of the spectacle, for us to be satisfied with this this opera we must emotionally connect. This is perhaps some of the best acting I’ve seen on this stage. The entire cast is flawless.”

I completely disagree; I think Wagner would have found it a gesamkunstwerk of the first order; a total experience. I found myself puzzled by some of the costume decisions but it was truly a minor point in an altogether outstanding production.

Wagner would roll over in his grave if he saw this production. What is with the costumes or lack of…??
