Auckland Philharmonia’s Opera in Concert

Tristan und Isolde

King Marke has claimed Isolde, princess of a rival kingdom, as his bride. To escort her to his castle, he has sent his knight Tristan. But the King is unaware that when Tristan was once grievously wounded in battle, Isolde healed him – and the two fell in love.

Tristan und Isolde is a searing portrait of agonised, unstoppable, uncontrollable desire that can end only in death. For everyone on the stage, it is a colossus. Giordano Bellincampi has assembled an extraordinary cast which could grace the stage of any great opera house on earth. This is a performance not to be missed.
