Tristan and Isolde in the open air: The Weinviertel Festival triumphs thanks to top-class singers!
The Ambassade Orchestra Vienna under the direction of Matthias Fletzberger showed its strengths in the first act and with a lean, bright string sound and precisely beginning solo passages of the woodwinds, something big could be expected for this opera premiere. In the further course of the evening, certainly also due to the numerous breaks in the rain and the associated assembly and dismantling of the instruments, the concentration of the orchestra musicians noticeably decreased. In the end, the conductor was only able to keep his orchestra together again and again in the love duet with clear signals.
