Opera Cheat Sheet: Tristan und Isolde
by: St.John Flynn, November 27, 2013 1:11:00 pm
This week, Classical 91.7's program director, St.John Flynn, and opera expert, Eric Skelly, discuss Wagner’s achingly beautiful Tristan und Isolde, arguably opera’s greatest love story and, at around 4 hours, probably its longest! Thwarted love, love potions, duty, betrayal, apotheosis…it’s all here set to lush, profound music.
You can hear Houston Grand Opera's production of Tristan und Isolde Saturday at noon on Classical 91.7 and online at classical917.org.
