    Default Illustration for "Tristan and Isolde" Prelude

    The snapshot below is from the DVD of Heiner Müller’s production of “Tristan und Isolde” at Bayreuth, 1995 – one of the watercolors that were used for the prelude. Those who know the production may remember that the scenery for Act I is in brownish-red tones and features these stark rectangular shapes – so I would imagine that this drawing might be a sketch by set designer Erich Wonder. The two of them on their journey to an existential experience, not yet communicating, mortally adverse even, but in strong connection – the image works quite well for me.

    That is by a large margin my favorite Tristan DVD and the prelude sequences are very well done with these images.
    Doch dieses Wörtlein: und, -wär' es zerstört,
    wie anders als mit Isoldes eignem Leben wär' Tristan der Tod gegeben?
