Houston Grand Opera - Wagner's Tristan And Isolde

The power of fate.  Legendary romance.  Romantic betrayal.  A matchless work of art, Tristan and Isolde speaks to timeless themes: the inevitability of fate, omnipresent death, and salvation through transcendent love. Tristan has entranced audiences with its mythical power and majestic music since its Munich premiere in 1865.

Sung in German with projected English translation.

Tickets and seating are on your own.

Pre-curtain lectures are held 45 minutes before each performance on the Orchestra Level of the theater.  These 20-minute presentations
are free and open to all ticket holders.

Out of consideration for other patrons and for the performers, there is
no late seating.

I will be at the top of the escalator to the left from 6:00PM to 6:10PM (look for the meetup lapel pin).  Please come and say hello.

Downtown offers free metered street parking after 6:00PM on Saturday (do not park by the red ones).  Parking in the Theater District Parking Garage is $7.00 on Saturday.  Clearance for trucks and vans is 6’8”.

*** PRE-SHOW DINNER ***

For anyone interested in having dinner before the performance, let's gather in the lobby of the Post Rice Lofts building at 4:45PM.  It is located at 909 Texas in between Travis and Main Streets.  I will be in the seating area on the left.  We will leave for dinner at 5:00PM.

    I just have to add that this was a stunning performance by soprano Nina Stemme. She handled the difficult role of Isolde with a vocal grace and flawlessly rose up to high notes in a way that brought a notable gasp from some in the audience.

      Nina was recently named by Britain's prestigious Opera magazine to be best female singer of the year, and we were fortunate to enjoy her only American appearance this season.
