Descripción del producto

"Recorded live at the Bayreuth Festival in July & August 2009, this production marks the beginning of an exciting new long-term partnership between the Bayreuth Festival and Opus Arte. The prestigious music festival takes place each year in northern Germany in a theatre that Wagner himself personally supervised the design and construction of. The festival has become a pilgrimage destination for Wagner enthusiasts, who often have to wait up to ten years to obtain a ticket! Katharina Wagner, the great-grand daughter of Richard Wagner, is currently codirector of the festival together with her sister Eva Wagner-Pasquier. Tristan und Isolde was first performed in 1865 and provided inspiration to many composers including Mahler, Strauss, Szymanowski and Berg. It is widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertoire, and has been performed regularly since its premiere. This production, by renowned director Christoph Marthaler, stars leading Wagner exponents Robert Dean Smith and Iréne Theorin in the title roles, supported by the Bayreuth Festival Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Peter Schneider.

<h3 class=""productDescriptionSource"">Press Reviews

"Peter Schneider conducted with real feeling for the score and the prelude to the first act stole upon the ear with the magic of Bayreuth's amazing acoustics. Robert Dean Smith is now a fine Tristan with a really beautiful voice...Robert Holl made a moving King Marke, his magnificent bass nobly used. Some of the most beautiful singing came from Clemens Bieber's Young Seaman at the beginning." (The Stage)

"In Tristan the standard of conducting and singing is high. Peter Schneider draws seamless playing from the orchestra, contouring Wagner's long arcs of sound as only someone of his experience can do. Iréne Theorin and Robert Dean Smith make a well-balanced couple - she all temperament and sound, he emotionally neutral but vocally flawless." (The Financial Times)

"Despite the ferocious competition, absolutely unmissable." (Gramophone)

This DVD represents a first in that Unitel, a company that has released most (if not all) of the DVDs (and VHS) emanating from Bayreuth is not involved in any way. It also appears to be the first time that an opera has been performed in front of a live audience. As I understand it all the previous films were performed at the house one act at a time and in one case it was filmed in a studio. In this way, of course, the singers had the advantage of being able to rest the voice and not run out of gas as it were by the time the last act was being performed. I have no idea what disadvantage filming in front of a live audience at Bayreuth creates but it is exciting to have them perform in this manner.

As to the performance, the cover of the Opus Arte set says it all: "Regiephobes" need not apply. This is clearly a Tristan set in the 20th century, circa the late fifties and early sixties. The set is essentially one, with adjustments made by the use of furniture and other decorations. Act I would appear to be a deck with many chairs, a cruise liner? An attractive woman, Irene Theorin is frumpily dressed. She storms across the set knocking over the chairs with great fury. Act II is an interior set and is evocative of nothing in particular. Theorin is dressed in a yellow suit that could be described as 60's chic, hair reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy. The seating arrangement for the two lovers is what you see on the cover of the DVD. The ceiling is a mass of circular neon lights periodiocally altered. Tristan would appear to be dressed as a cruise director. In Act III all the decorations (such as they are) have been stripped from the wall, and an a slightly elevated platform for a hospital bed surrounded by bars is the focus and where we find Tristan. My main complaint with the concept is that it appears to ignore the mythic element inherent in the Tristan legend--after all we in a world that contains potions of great power. In so doing Marthaler has drained away a great deal of the passion and humanity of the characters. They are more like puppets obeying his instructions. For example during Act II Isolde (white gloved) points her index finger in various directions at seeminly arbitrary times. I have no idea what this is supposed to mean. Our Tristan would appear to have been given no direction. I have read somwwhere that Flagstad had no idea of what the Isolde persona was; Theorin in a bonus film makes the remark that she is ready to go along with the director, but having sung the role a numbeer of times she also has some of her own ideas and is ready to employ them. I would like to hear more of her opinions.

Vocally the performance is on much stronger ground. Theorin's Brunhilde in the Copenhagen Ring is probably one of the best sung in today's list of current Brunhildes. The voice is hardly comparable in size to Flagstad or Nilsson, and if we were in a world that could offer singers of that ilk, she probably would be a leading Sieglinde. But if we want Wagner, Theorin, along with Stimme, probably offer performances that will trump any other contender. Until recently Waltraute Meier has certainly held the Isolde crown and her La Scala performance is superb, high notes not withstanding. She is also a tremendous actress and great beauty. She also had better direction with Patrice Chereau. I understand that Theorin is going to sing Turandot! Althought the role is short it strikes me as an inadvised move. The voice is too soft grained for a role that requires more metal. I would love to hear her in a Tristan that plays to her strenghts and utilizes her potential as an actress.

Of the recent Tristans Robert Dean Smith has the virtue of being the best. He certainly outsings Robert Gambill in the Glyndebourne performance who enjoyed the usual Act II cut. His voice is more inherently beautiful than Ian Storey in the La Scala DVD, but he is so poorly directed here that he simply cannot make the effect that Wagner surely must have intended. After helping the Met out with their Tristan run last year, Smith got the telecast with Voigt. Although I am no fan of the Met's production Smith was excellent, lacking the beauty of Heppner's voice, but much more secure and having the advantage of a slimmer physique.

Robert Holls Marke has the requisite gravitas, but he now sports an inchoate wobble. An indifferent actor (Marthaler, again?) he hardly makes the impact that Pape and Salminen do in their outings in the role.

It is not fair to plays all the CD sets that memorialized the era of geat Wagner singing (I refer to the bootleg performances from Bayreuth during the 50' and early 60')that are now available to us, Varnay in particular, but also Windgassen and Hotter, and then put on any of the DVD's that are currently available. We seem to live in age when singers with big voices simply don't exist; it can be argued that these voice types weren't available to Wagner. When asked as to how he or she was to sing he responded that they should sing his roles as they would in an Italian opera. But orchestras have grown larger and louder (the cowl at Bayreuth does compensate to a degree) and voices seem to be smaller. European houses are smaller and voice friendly. Also great Wagner conducting is hardly in abundance. When Thieleman is cited as the star of the most recent Ring cycle to appear on CD, we know that Wagner singing is in trouble. And Thieleman is doubtless the leading Wagner-Strauss conductor currently working, since Barenboim has departed from Bayreuth. Schneider is a good Wagner conductor; his instincts usually lead him in the right direction. He has been at Bayreuth for some time now and will never be the kind of star conductor that was so prevalent in the years after the reopening of the house.

As to my rating it is essentially the singing and that will draw me to the performance although in truth I am more likely to go to La Scala for a Tristan that is closer to the dramatic truth. New concepts no matter how odd or bizarre they seem can challenge ones opinions and preconceived notions. I welcome them--sometimes with reservations.
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Solid Contemporary Staging of Tristan und Isolde Recorded Live at Bayreuth. 27 de febrero de 2014

This is presently my best DVD version of this opera, all things considered. I also have three Opus Arte blu ray recordings of live performances from Bayreuth (Meistersinger, Die Walkure and Tristan); this one being very good, "Die Walkure" excellent, and "Meistersinger" simply outstanding, in my view. This "Tristan" is a non traditional staging taking place in the 1930-40's but a linear and straightforward one, with no surrealistic or avant garde" elements, unlike "Meistersinger", which I regard as a veritable masterpiece. Robert Dean Smith and Irene Theorin both sing and act effectively in this production.

This is a Tristan for today. Myth for now. I do not think that the traditionalists will like it. For example,the action takes place inside the saloon of a ship. Modern decor which slowly decays through the three acts. It is set in the early 196o's. The sets are about the reality of everyday life. We cannot really envisage, the inner life of Tristan and Isolde.The action is slow. For example in Act three, at the end ,there are no bodies laying around, just singers standing against the wall. When tristan sings in his delirium about the light, lights go on in a subtle way. The acting is superb. In my review for the Bluray Tristan und Isolde with Stemme and Gambill singing, I have gone into the History of this opera and how Wagner was influenced by Schopenhauer. He in turn was influenced by Buddhism and Hindu brahminism. I have shown how this came to be. So, the Day represents everyday life and the night, the astral planes, or another dimension. The love duet is not gibberish,but represents Wagners attempts to explain the Astral planes and Nirvana. It is hard to produce this opera, really as Chereau once said, you should hear it on the radio.

Robert Dean Smith has a distinctive voice and is better then Gambill in the Stemme version.Theorin has a big voice and is good in Acts one and three, but you feel she is attempting not to drown out Smith in Act two. Brangane Michelle Breedt is as good. King marke ,Holl, and kurwenal, Rasilainen are a credit to the opera . This is a live performance. I wondered what the Bayreuth opera house looked like inside ,now I know. The conducting of Peter Schneider is swift. This is how Wagner meant his operas to be conducted. His son Siegfried conducted in this manner, which he learnt from his father when he was still alive. I do not like slow conducted performances,it ruins it.Amazingly,the two Blu rays, and three DVDs I have of this opera, are all well conducted and sung. Well done, Bayreuth. Now what we require is a live Ring from that August establishment.

I saw this production in 2009-I refer to it as "Love in a Communist Bus Station". Nevertheless, I appreciate the opportunity to re-live a bit of Bayreuth and experience the music and drama in comfortable clothes, sitting on a sofa and enjoying this in an environment that's 30+ degrees cooler than it was in the Festspielhaus.

I LIKE this DVD. Smith and Theorin both sang beautifully and being "up close and personal" really diminished the somewhat unorthodox staging. I have the other available DVDs of Tristan & Isolde and have no regrets about adding this to my collection.
