Wagner’s Sigfried / Opéra National du Rhein / Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra

A miraculous collaboration.  The other contribution to the success, the German conductor Claus Peter Flor who shone a virtue that is lost in lyrical theatre:  Do not cover the singers and let them become inaudible especially in a piece of work that the text dominates.  The collaboration of orchestral textures he has woven throughout this moment in time, with all the miraculous flow of phrasing are moments of pure theatrical grace.
