I was looking forward to seeing Lisbeth Balslev and Stig F Andersen in
Tristan und Isolde in Copenhagen on Sunday but todays review in the
paper made me worried.
It seems the production is really unlucky. First the Premiere was
postponed from last Sunday and then a new Isolde stepped in for Balslev.
Add to this Andersen's throat infection and you understand that the
premiere was "shaky."
Anyway the saving soprano was Sue Patchell, who according to the
reviewer was neither dramatic nor personable but sang well. Anybody
heard of her?
