I Follow a Voice Within Me

If you are a fan of Waltraud Meier, you shouldn’t miss the documentary I Follow a Voice Within Me on DVD. It shows her rehearsing, recording and performing on stage, not to mention interviews with her and colleagues.

It is very fascinating to see "die Waltraud" in rehearsal preparing for a role or a production. She is very focused, but also full of laughter. In the documentary we see her rehearsing or on stage as Sieglinde (Die Walküre, with Placido Domingo), Amneris (Aida), Ortrud (Lohengrin), Didon (Les Troyens), Leonore (Fidelio), Isolde (Heiner Müller’s Tristan in Bayreuth) and Marie (Wozzek).
