Er sah mir in die Augen!



The DVD of the Munich production of Tristan und Isolde (staged by Peter Konwitschny)from 1999 is loaded with highlights.

The first major highlight comes in Isolde's narration when she tells of her encounter with Tristan. She had an opportunity to kill him, but let's her sword drop. No one can sing this like Waltraud Meier: the passion, the confusion, the surrendering.
