Tristan and Isolde, Act II
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Tristan and Isolde, the ill-fated lovers of Celtic legend, became a cherished tale of forbidden desire throughout Western art. Wagner’s masterpiece Tristan und Isolde, a spellbinding meditation on love and death, is “the love story that changed opera for good” (NPR). For this concert performance of Act II, Gianandrea Noseda and the esteemed National Symphony Orchestra lead glistening soprano Christine Goerke and powerful tenor Stephen Gould in one of the most rapturous and demanding duets in the repertory.
This concert is also part of Great Performers.
