Notes and Editorial Reviews
Between 1922 and 1945, the Sopot Forest Theatre's Wagner Festival was as internationally famous as that of Bayreuth itself, and its productions had the advantage of being unique. From 1933 onwards, Tietjen's Bayreuth productions were also staged year-round at the Berlin State Opera - and with a changing cast, too. Forest Opera productions, on the other hand, were neither copied nor transplanted to other theaters. A natural environment develops according to its own laws and cannot easily be altered. Besides, every open-air performance has its own acoustic peculiarities, dictated by the venue. It took Forest Opera twelve years to achieve its definitive form, and its history is an example of the perfect partnership between astute women and energetic men. This set of wonderful CDs contains selections by most of the singers who sang at Sopot. The program booklet is very informative telling the past and present of this unique Wagner Festival. Here is a set for the most sophisticated historical collector.
