Vienna will stream notorious Tristan tomorrowNews
The Calixto Bieito production of Tristan und Isolde, described as Vienna’s ‘most terrible, dilettante performance’, can be seen tomorrow on the Staatsoper channel, here. (You will be required to register, but it’s free).
Our critic Larry L. Lash advises: ‘Whereas Dominique Meyer offered free streaming of operas and dance evenings several times a month, Bogdan Roščić has shut down the platform and shows only a few performances each season on the company’s website. They are also taken down rather quickly. A new ballet (to Haydn’s “Die Jahreszeiten”) will be streamed on Saturday, so it is likely the “Tristan” will only be available until then.’
