The return of an iconic coup de theatre. David Hockney’s stunning designs make his breathtaking, internationally acclaimed staging of Tristan und Isolde one of the Company’s most exciting landmark productions. The bold and fancifully abstract Hockney sets dazzle the eye, creating a “tone of antic freshness, of fairy-tale legend filtered through adult (and adulterous) fantasy” (New York Times). They provide a stunning visual counterpoint to Wagner’s unfolding drama of fatal attraction and forbidden love.
With the intense longing of the opening orchestral prelude all the way through to Isolde’s final aria, the artfully orgasmic “Liebestod,” Wagner charts new operatic territory that changed the course of music history. Tristan und Isolde features two artists in the title roles, John Treleaven and Linda Watson, who will return in future seasons as Siegfried and Brünnhilde in the Company’s first presentation of Wagner’s epic Ring cycle.
