Why See Boston Symphony Orchestra - Wagner?
An operatic concert masterpiece
Forming part of the BSO's All-Wagner season, conductor Andris Nelsons will be taking the Mass. based orchestra up to the Big Apple for one night only in April, with a full opera concert production of Tristan und Isolde, Act II. Wagerian tenor Jonas Kaufmann will sing the role of Tristan, whilst the role of Isolde will be sung by soprano Camilla Nylund, during one of opera's most impassioned duets.
A tale as old as time, (or at least one thousand years) Tristan and Isolde has long been considered the ultimate tale of passionate, romantic love in forbidden circumstances. With its universal theme of all-consuming love and bitter-sweet tragedy - it fits perfectly into Wagner's repertoire of epics.
King Mark of Cornwall has plenty to be worried about, his enemy Morholt of Ireland is threatening invasion and a charistmatic stranger, Tristan has turned up at court. Together they take on the fight and on winning, form a strong bond. But when Mark asks Tristan to go to Ireland and get the beautiful Isolde to be his bride, Tristan quickly falls in love with the enigmatic princess. On their return to Cornwall their affair, aided by a nefarious love potion, carries on, causing chaos in the lives and the hearts of the three, with effects that will change all of them forever...
