Richard Wagner's TRISTAN AND ISOLDE (4 - 3/4 hours).
Libretto by the composer
Production from Opera Australia

In Wagner's retelling of the beloved Celtic myth and its star-crossed lovers, Deborah Voigt--one of the finest Wagnerian sopranos of our time--brings her alluring portrayal of Isolde to a stunning production featuring an impressive international cast.
Isolde, a beautiful Irish maiden with magical powers, is riding the high seas to marry her betrothed, the King of Cornwall. But first she must destroy the king's nephew Tristan, the dashing knight who slayed her previous fiancé in battle. When the poison she concocts turns out be a love potion, her vengeful ire and his bold betrayal are suddenly transformed into rapturous, unbridled passion. As the royal wedding approaches, Tristan and Isolde can only find comfort under the cover of night. Yet even the darkness cannot hide their desires for long.
