THE MET OPERA: Tristan &Isolde
Sat, 8th October, 2016 @ 17:00pm£8 – £12
The three acts of the opera are originally set, respectively, aboard ship on the Irish Sea, in Cornwall and in Brittany . Wagner’s preservation of this context emphasizes several key themes associated with ancient Celtic culture: mysticism, knowledge of the magic arts, an evolved warrior code, and a distinctly non-Christian vision of the possibilities of the afterlife.
Hugely influencial and widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertoire the MET Opera brings you this spectacular production.
