Reviews

The concentrated acting performances are closely supported by Christian Thielemann’s approach, a marked contrast to his rather unspecifice live recording of the piece from Vienna (DG, 8/04). … This is an important and compelling addition to the number of worthwhile interventionist Bayreuth productions of the opera already captured on DVD.  Mike Ashman
