Although the roles of the Rhinemaidens are relatively small, they have been sung by notable singers better known for performing major roles in Wagnerian and other repertoire. The first person to sing the part of Woglinde in full was Lilli Lehmann at Bayreuth in 1876. In 1951, when the Bayreuth Festival re-opened after the Second World War, the same part was taken by Elisabeth Schwarzkopf. Other Bayreuth Rhinemaidens include Helga Dernesch who sang Wellgunde there between 1965 and 1967. Lotte Lehmann played Wellgunde at the Hamburg State Opera between 1912 and 1914 and the Vienna State Opera in 1916. Recorded Rhinemaidens have included Sena Jurinac for Furtwängler and RAI, Lucia Popp and Gwyneth Jones for Georg Solti, and Helen Donath and Edda Moser for Karajan.
Born in Vienna, Dernesch studied at the Vienna Hochschule für Musik before making her debut in 1961 singing Marina in "Boris Godunov" in Bern. She continued to sing in Bern from 1961 to 1963, in Wiesbaden 1963-1965 and at the Cologne Opera from 1965 to 1968. She made her first appearance in Bayreuth (as Wellgunde in "Der Ring des Nibelungen") in 1965. Two years later she was singing Elisabeth in "Tannhäuser" there, and Sieglinde with the Bayreuth Festival on tour in Osaka. She made her first appearance at the Salzburg Easter Festival in 1969. With Scottish Opera she performed Gutrune (1968), her first Leonore (1970), the Marschallin (1971), Brünnhilde, Isolde, Ariadne, and Cassandra.
Krenn received his first musical training as a member of the boys' choir Wiener Sängerknaben. He later studied bassoon and was principal bassoonist of the Wiener Symphoniker from 1962 to 1966. His singing talents were recognized, embarked upon voice lessons with Elisabeth Rado. Krenn made his operatic debut in "The Fairy Queen" at the Berlin Deutsche Oper. He made a number of notable recordings of Schubert in the late 1960s. He was a regular performer with the Vienna State Opera in the 1970s. Krenn performed in Salzburg in Beethoven’s "Missa Solemnis", conducted by Herbert von Karajan. "The Musical Times" said of him in 1971, "Werner Krenn's voice is sweet and true and earnest". He has performed with the Scottish Opera and the BBC International Concert at the Royal Festival Hall. His wife is the soprano Helga Dernesch.
Karajan did not record the opera officially until 1971–72. Karajan's selection of a lighter soprano voice (Helga Dernesch) as Isolde, paired with an extremely intense Jon Vickers and the unusual balance between orchestra and singers favoured by Karajan was controversial. In the 1980s recordings by conductors such as Carlos Kleiber, Reginald Goodall and Leonard Bernstein were mostly considered to be important for the interpretation of the conductor, rather than that of the lead performers. The set by Kleiber is notable as Isolde was sung by the famous Mozartian soprano Margaret Price, who never sang the role of Isolde on stage. The same is true for Plácido Domingo, who sang the role of Tristan to critical acclaim in the 2005 EMI release under the baton of Antonio Pappano despite never having sung the role on stage. In the last ten years acclaimed sets include a studio recording with the Berlin Philharmonic by Daniel Barenboim and a live set from the Vienna Staatsoper led by Christian Thielemann.
Later in her career (from 1980 onwards), she undertook the title role of "Elektra" as well as Isolde (in "Tristan und Isolde"), the Dyer's Wife (in "Die Frau ohne Schatten"), Turandot and Minnie (in "La fanciulla del West"). While best known for her work in the Wagner-Strauss-Puccini repertoire, her versatility enabled her to take on other roles, such as Poppea (in "L'incoronazione di Poppea"), Hanna Glawari (in "The Merry Widow") and Norma. Starting from the 1990s, other than the aforementioned parts, she went on to sing Widow Begbick ("Mahagonny"), Ortrud (in "Lohengrin"), the Woman in Arnold Schoenberg's "Erwartung", the Kostelnicka (in "Jenůfa"), the Kabanicha (in "Káťa Kabanová"), the Woman in Poulenc's "La voix humaine", Ruth (in "The Pirates of Penzance"), Gertrud (in "Hänsel und Gretel"), Herodias (in "Salome") and Klytemnästra (in "Elektra"). She appeared as the Dyers Wife in "Die Frau ohne Schatten" at the Cologne Opera in 1980 in a production by Jean Pierre Ponnelle, conducted by John Pritchard, with Walter Berry as the Dyer, Róbert Ilosfalvy as the Emperor, Siv Wennberg as the Empress, and Helga Dernesch as the "Amme".
