18:00 Tristan und Isolde
Music drama in three acts by Richard Wagner. 300 min (with two intermissions). Music Director: Jan Latham-Koenig. Performed in German. Tristan und Isolde is one of Wagner’s most poignant operas, the peak of the romantic art, the ideal of beauty and expression in music. Its Moscow premiere at the Novaya Opera, the fourth in its Russian history, was the highlight of the 2012–2013 season. The production was staged by opera director Nicola Raab and designer George Souglides. For the chief conductor Jan Latham-Koenig Tristan und Isolde became his second Wagnerian project at the Novaya Opera after his production of Lohengrin, which was highly acclaimed by the public and critics alike. In her version Nicola Raab used the sketches made by the famous designer Alfred Roller in 1903 for the legendary production of the opera at the Vienna State Opera staged and conducted by Gustav Mahler. The podium is taken by Novaya Opera Chief Conductor Jan Latham-Koenig, a connoisseur and brilliant interpreter of Wagnerian music. "The conductor Jan-Latham Koenig has first of all been noted here for his Wagner: such obviously magnificent Wagner as, for example, in the production of Tristan und Isolde is to be found nowhere else in Moscow," Kommersant.
