Metropolitan Opera: Tristan and Isolde

October 17 - November 6, 2020

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. This new staging from Mariusz Trelinski promises to capture the power and pain of this ancient love triangle, in a large scale production, that brings the action into modern times, beginning on a lavish passenger ship in the Irish sea. Starring Nina Steeme and Stuart Skelton, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.
