“Sarah Connolly and Iain Paterson, too, both make huge impacts as Brangäne and Kurwenal. So much, in fact, that the anguish of these too-loyal sidekicks becomes in some ways more interesting than the fate of Tristan and Isolde themselves — both of whom seem so imprisoned by past tragedies (Isolde by her lover’s death at Tristan’s hands, Tristan by his mother’s death in childbirth) that their self-destruction seems inevitable.”
