“[T]right here was very good music from a first-rate forged and orchestra Saturday evening. However what few might have anticipated is how beautiful this ‘Tristan’ would look—and the way the sensible use of projections on the stage can draw the viewers into the internal world of the 2 protagonists. […] Stage director Marcelo Lombardero and set/video designer Diego Siliano have created a game-changing ‘Tristan’ with this outstanding manufacturing.” The Seattle Instances
