Read more about the opera Tristan and Isolde

With the pairing of the great Walter Widdop and Florence Austral in the title roles there can be no complaints about this cast, and the lesser roles were equally well filled. John Barbirolli also conducted Tristan with the Covent Garden company in the early fifties.

Cast details are from a programme in the Edinburgh Room of Edinburgh City Library.
