Weekend Opera Edition: Tristan und Isolde (La Scala)

This year’s La Scala‘s season opened with Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde – great YouTuber (from Italy, I assume) posted the whole thing (a part of Act One seems to be missing) in more than 20 videos, so for the sake of convenience (my own, of course), I decided to collect them all in a sequence that could be suitable for continuous watching.  OperaChic has covered the opening gala and has some great pictures of Italian newspapers that, strangely enough, carried the story of La Scala’s opening night on the front page.
