Paris boos an American IsoldeOpera
ForumOpera reports that the inexperienced American soprano Mary Elizabeth Williams faced boos and whistling at the Paris Opera revival of the 2005 Peter Sellars production of Tristan und Isolde.
Williams sang her first Isolde only a few months ago in Seattle.
Michael Weinius sang Tristan. The revival was conducted by music director Gustavo Dudamel.
