I did exactly the same. A voice from hell. Gwyneth Jones came immediately  
to mind. Is it possible listeners today have never heard a decent voice, let 
 alone a great one.

This  enthusiasm for Nina Stemme is utterly bizarre to me.  I finally  
off the radio because I could not bear to hear another note from  her.  A
wobble you could drive a truck through and high notes like a  tentative
coloratura. She seemed a combination of Gabriella Schnaut and  Gwyneth 
with a little Martha Mdl thrown in.  Just dreadful,  dreadful, ugly 
a technique so poor that it made irrelevant to me  anything she might 
to do dramatically.

Did Tristan make it  through Act III?  He started well enough but was 
in trouble at  the end of Act I.
