One more spin of the revolving door

A reader points me to this link, noting that Waltraud Meier flew in from Germany last night to sing tonight's Isolde. Meanwhile Peter Seiffert is back as Tristan.

I believe Meier has, as the reader pointed out, been avoiding the role here on purpose. But a one-off is surely less risk than a whole run, and she's sung it often with Barenboim before.

This has the makings of an event.

  1. Waltraud!!! I would give almost anything to be there for this event, surely an event!!


Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
