Bayreuth Festival 2016

Links to my reviews for from the 2016 Bayreuth Festival:

Das Rheingold
“Aleksander Denić’s designs are phenomenal in their eye for detail and realism”

Die Walküre
“The final scene has rarely come closer to drawing tears”

“Catherine Foster’s Brünnhilde was glorious in its tonal allure”

“Marek Janowski’s conducting throughout has been a revelation”

Tristan und Isolde
“Gould was... tireless, crisply enunciated, shapely phrased and even in vocal weight”

“Zeppenfeld’s Gurnemanz was a masterclass in clear enunciation, opulent bass tone and vocal charisma”
