The directors Harry Kupfer, Nikolaus Lehnhoff, David McVicar and others heed Wagner’s own persuasive plea, ‘Children, make it new’, in stagings employing sophisticated modern technology within grand designs which face up to the breadth of Wagner’s dramatic genius and the social and political implications of his work for us today.

"Musically, it was judged faultlessly for the scale of the theatre by Vladimir Jurowski, who conjured playing of mercurial clarity - not the first words one would normally choose for this gargantuan score - from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, sustained with unfailing vigilance and concentration." - The Guardian (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg)
"I don’t think that I have ever witnessed a more perfect realisation of a Wagner opera than this superb Tristan und Isolde. …[Jirí Belohlávek] is scrupulous with the score, and takes his time over it: the pauses and silences are immense and there is no factitious attempt to whip up excitement by speeding. …a great and unforgettable occasion" - The Daily Telegraph (Tristan und Isolde)
