Watching this disk I'm afraid to say that I still hate her voice and can find nothing positive to say about it.
In fact, Eaglen, in particular, is rather out of sorts in the role of Isolde, and Heppner's performance is lackluster.
Sound is either PCM Stereo or DTS 5.1, so no Dolby Digital 5.1 (surprisingly, since the Fidelio has that option).
I viewed several different dvd performances to find what I wanted. First, it must be traditional staging. Second, it must be true to Wagner's intent. Third, it must be well sung. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Boz

Wagner is one of my favorites; and Tristan and Isolde is my favorite Wagner Opera.
Strangely enough, I truly enjoyed most everything about this Met offering--except for the... Read more
This is pretty much a failure. It seems most agree that the staging is awful, along with the acting. But, to my ears, even the sound(meaning performance) is hardly satifactory. Read morePublished on September 13, 2007 by Sir Butternut Longsword

The Tristan und Isolde with Johanna Meier on DGG is about to be released in North America. She is all I ever imagined Isolde to be. I have the VHS and have been waiting impatiently for the DVD. The total production is wonderful!!!
