»Tristan und Isolde« presents the love between two people in its most ecstatic form, perhaps like no other work in the operatic literature. Richard Wagner's music puts us in a »permanent state of intoxication« - as GMD Patrick Lange puts it - a type of »emotional borderline experience for everyone«. But can such an all-encapsulating love as the one shared between Tristan and Isolde still exist in our society today? This is one of the questions director Uwe Eric Laufenberg tackles in his new production of this momentous work. Barbara Haveman and Marco Jentzsch sing the title roles, while Catherine Foster and Andeas Schager will grace the stage alongside René Pape (as King Marke) during the International May Festival.
