Tristan und Isolde

2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the first performance of Wagner’s opera Tristan und Isolde which was staged in Munich on 10 June 1865.
To celebrate the occasion, Giorgio Mancini has decided to create a piece that is inspired by this masterful opera.
Next performance: Sunday 20.11.2016 – Teatros del Canal (Madrid).

The project

Isolde’s last words at the end of the opera: “To drown, to founder – unconscious – utmost rapture!” are the source of inspiration for the choreographer who has called upon Dorothée Gilbert and Mathieu Ganio, both étoile dancers at the Opéra National de Paris, to form a duo in the hour long performance of Tristan und Isolde.

The two exceptional dancers are a perfect fit for the characters of Tristan and Isolde, in whom Giorgio Mancini wishes to breathe life into their souls during an evening of passion and emotion.
