Tristan und Isolde (Mar. 22, 2008)

Composer: Richard Wagner
Librettist: Richard Wagner

Levine; Voigt, DeYoung, Smith, Schulte, Salminen

Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus

Approximate running time: 4 hrs. 20 min.

James Levine’s love for this monumental opera shimmers throughout this exciting performance. It was an afternoon to remember: Met favorite Deborah Voigt singing her first run as the proud Irish princess opposite tenor Robert Dean Smith—making an astonishing Met debut in front of a live worldwide movie-theater audience. Michelle DeYoung was a sisterly Brangäne and Matti Salminen an imposing King Marke.
