“It’s as impressive a cast as you’d be lucky to find at Covent Garden or The Met.” – Limelight Magazine

Principal Conductor Asher Fisch conducts Wagner’s groundbreaking opera with the finest cast ever assembled in Australia.

To celebrate WASO’s 90th year, Principal Conductor Asher Fisch, one of today’s supreme Wagner interpreters, leads two performances of Richard Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde at Perth Concert Hall.

Composed in a state of ecstatic infatuation, this groundbreaking opera is one of the greatest of all tragic love stories. Young lovers Tristan and Isolde share a passion so overwhelming that it transcends the bounds of their earthly existence. Thwarted in life, only in death can their love be transfigured and their souls united in a metaphysical hereafter.

To portray the heightened passions of this epic drama, Wagner pushed his music into unprecedented expressive territory, revolutionising the art form and forever changing the boundaries of the possible.

Witnessing a great performance of Tristan und Isolde is a revelatory experience. Be transported by the emotions, intensity, drama and sheer sumptuous beauty of Wagner’s magnificent masterpiece.
