Description

Composed in a state of ecstatic infatuation, this groundbreaking opera is one of the greatest of all tragic love stories. Young lovers Tristan and Isolde share a passion so overwhelming that it transcends the bounds of their earthly existence. Thwarted in life, only in death can their love be transfigured and their souls united in a metaphysical hereafter. To portray the heightened passions of this epic drama, Wagner pushed his music into unprecedented expressive territory, revolutionising the art form and forever changing the boundaries of the possible.
