Tristan and Isolde

Contact information

Description

Like Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde has become an expression of unconditional love. First performed in 1865, Wagner's opera remains among the most significant works in the history of music and has set a standard for later operatic composers.
In our new production, we meet one of the most sought after Wagner singers of our time, the American tenor Gary Lehman. Critically acclaimed for his title role as Tannhäuser in spring 2010, he has since performed in Lulu in spring 2011. British director Daniel Slater makes a return to Oslo, having directed Puccini’s Manon Lescaut at the Norwegian National Opera in 2005.

They undressed, and became eternal for each other As from a magic drink, everything was transformed into themselves; their longings became blind chords that hastened to them from everything they touched, until they
became everything they touched (from the poem "Tristan and Isolde" by Stein Mehren).
