The plot

The legend of Tristan and Isolde, one of the most romantic stories of the Middle Ages, is very old: it tells the adventures of a knight and a princess who fall in love thanks to a magic elixir. Wagner composed the opera based on Goffredo di Strasburgo’s text and staged it in 1865. It is still considered one of the masterpieces of all time. The version that will be performed, while maintaining the essential dramaturgical and musical lines intact, is adapted in such a way as to exalt the magical and symbolic fairy-tale aspects of the story, which has at its centre important themes linked to the imaginary and ideal horizon of the world of chivalry, such as the search for love, the relationship between public morality and private morality, sin and fidelity.

Spoken parts of the performance are in Italian; a basic understanding of the language is adviced.

This Saturday performance is open to everyone.

Performances from Tue to Fri are events for school groups. In case seats are available to the general audience, they will be on sale on the same day of performance at the box-office.
