Chéreau's Tristan out on DVD now
Waltraud Meier's extraordinary performance as Isolde in Patrice Chéreau's production of Tristan und Isolde from Teatro alla Scala is now out on DVD. At Amazon.co.uk it costs only £10.49. No I am not kidding. It is practically free. I got my copy today. At Amazon.com no other information than "This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer.This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer." is given. This must be a mistake. Anyway, it is available at Amazon.co.uk.
Is this the best Tristan on DVD?
