The most terrible, dilettante performance ever seen at Vienna State OperaNews
From a review of Calixto Bieito’s production of Tristan und Isolde, in Der Merker online:
Let’s sum it up quite clearly: This evening was by far the most terrible and dilettante performance we have ever seen on the stage of Vienna State Opera. Actually we feel betrayed and want our money back, as this was much below the standards that can be expected as a minimum for a house with this history. It marks the provisional low point of director BOGDAN ROSCIC‘s consequent aim to bring in modernist litter that has nothing to do with being contemporary or even provocative. Regrettably, we expect that there is much more to come in the future and state it very direct: Enough is enough.
