Review in The New York Times:

"Tristan and Isolde" had its last performance but one at the Metropolitan Opera House last evening. Herren Niemann, Fischer, and Robinson and Fräuleins Lehmann and Brandt were seen in the roles they sustained when Wagner's typical music-drama was first made known to the New York public, and the singers were one and all in excellent form. The representation progressed after the familiar fashion, and was followed with the wonted attention and punctuated with the usual applause. The incidents and numbers of the second act - it the word habitually applied to the conventional forms of opera can fairly be used in dealing with the, music-drama -were, of course, the most impressive part of yesterday's performance, and the final curtain had to be raised twice upon the scene.
