Tristan and Isolde was the first live performance in Sydney of a major Wagner work since 2003! We Wagnerians have been dying of Wagner-thirst.

The standout singers for me were John Relyea as King Marke and Katarina Karneus as Brangane. Both have voices worth traveling to hear. I hope they get another opportunity to sing Wagner in Sydney and that we don't have to wait another twelve years before we hear them again.
