“Tristan und Isolde” with Gun-Brit Barkmin is Limelight’s Opera Recording of the Year 2019

TristanCollage.jpgRichard Wagner’s “Tristan und Isolde” – captured live in concert in August 2018 and released on ABC Classic in September 2019 – with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra and a remarkable cast led by Stuart Skelton and Gun-Brit Barkmin under the baton of Asher Fisch is Limelight’s Opera Recording of the Year 2019. Congratulations!

Isolde is sung by German soprano Gun-Brit Barkmin, acclaimed over her glittering career for her interpretation of leading roles in works by Janáček, Britten, Berg, Wagner and Richard Strauss. Her Isolde was hailed as “thrilling”, “an extraordinarily complete portrayal” that was “a revelation”.
