Bayreuth gets an American Isoldemain
We’re excited to report that, at the dress rehearsal of Katharina Wagner’s new production of Tristan und Isolde, the part of Isolde was sung by Linda Watson, deputising for an unwell Evelyn Herlitzius.
Linda had flown in just a day earlier from California.
Evelyn is expected to reclaim the role on opening night, but insiders tell us that Linda was absolutely stunning.
Linda is a previous Kundry, Ortrud, all Brünnhilde at Bayreuth.
