But first, the competition: In "celebration" of the the final appearance of Christoph Marthaler's Tristan at Bayreuth one lucky reader will win themselves, what sounds like, a half decent transfer (well it cost enough considering you can pick this up for peanuts) of Hans Knappertsbusch's, somewhat legendary, Tristan und Isolde from 1950 - details below
