Exclusive: Vienna’s Tristan gets booed at dress rehearsalNews
is this a record?
After act one of today’s dress rehearsal of today’s Generalprobe of Tristan und Isolde in Calixto Bieito’s new production, our man in the aisles says there was a storm of booing – unheard of from an invited audience, mostly of people under the age of 27.
Before the 2nd act the Staatsoper director, Bogdan Roscic, came out and told the audience that they are attending as guests and he would have them thrown out if there was any repetition of the booing.
Our experienced operagoer says: ‘the production is the worst and most amateurish I have ever seen.’
