Tristan und Isolde
A real feast for music lovers!
For the first time in the history of independent Ukraine, one of the most difficult to perform, and, at the same time, one of the most magnificent masterpieces ever created in the history of opera – ‘Tristan und Isolde’ by Richard Wagner.
The concert version of the opera will be performed at 18:00 on September 15 on the stage of the National Opera of Ukraine, which organizes the event along with the Kyiv Symphony Orchestra.
The involvement of renowned Ukrainian vocalists and Ukrainian orchestra, which is a remarkable testament of Ukraine’s opera potential, as well as participation of Belarusian conductor Vitali Alekseenok, who is closely associated with Ukraine thanks to a number of successful creative projects here, are the distinctive features of this project.
