    Mahler's 1903 performances of Tristan at the Vienna Opera are considered a landmark production, featuring the simplified, expressionistic sets of Alfred Roller, who put into practice some of the ideas of the visionary theorist of the theater, Adolphe Appia. Appia's ideas offered precedents for the productions of Wieland Wagner, with their move away from realistic sets and toward the use of abstract stage pictures and the expressive use of light to mirror the moods of the music and illuminate the psychology of the characters. Roller didn't go as far as Appia or Wieland in the direction of visual abstraction, but his productions were a decisive step toward modern concepts of staging.

    Here are some images from Appia's, Roller's and Wieland's conceptions of Tristan:

    Yes, she warns them twice but fails when it matters. Maybe she fell asleep.

    Either that or she got absorbed in a good book. Wolfram von Eschenbach's "Parzival," maybe.
