Forbidden love bound by the magic of an aphrodisiac
Wagner's greatest masterpiece

Tristan und Isolde," which caused a sensation when it was performed in the 2010/2011 season under the baton of Kazushi Ohno and directed by David McVicar, will make its return to the stage. Tristan und Isolde" is considered to be one of Wagner's greatest operas from his mature period, and its searing music depicts love and anguish, allowing the audience to feel Wagner's magic with their whole bodies. In addition to abundant use of light motifs (motifs that show characters and situations) and endless melodies that lead from one melody to a new melody, Wagner also created unstable-sounding chords called "Tristan chords" in "Tristan und Isolde" by pursuing a chromatic progression, which is called the "Tristan chord". In "Tristan und Isolde," Wagner expressed sensuality and exuberance by creating unstable-sounding chords called "Tristan chords. His Prelude, often performed alone, and the climax of "Isolde's Love Death" are especially famous for their sweet undulations that lead the listener to a cathartic experience.
Kazushi Ohno, who has a strong conviction as artistic director to bring this revolutionary work in the history of opera to opera fans, will conduct the production himself, with Tristan performed by Torsten Kehr, one of the world's leading Heldentenors, who has many fans in Japan, and Lieene Kincha as Isolde.
