RICHARD WAGNER

Tristan und Isolde

The maximum expression of Wagnerian innovations, Tristan und Isolde is the poem of passionate love, of night and of death. In the work, represented for the first time at the Teatro Comunale of Bologna on June 2, 1888, the magical atmosphere of the ancient medieval tale is condensed into an anguished song of desire and despair, which spreads along the tensions of a very rich musical texture. The protagonists, Tristan and Isolde, find themselves condemned to suffer for an impossible love and try, with death, to render their feelings eternal.
