Presentation

No composer has merged voice and orchestra to express human emotions like Richard Wagner. In Tristan and Isolde, absolute love is expressed with great nobility: the two doomed lovers love and die to the most tragic and touching music ever composed. The heroine of The Valkyrie, proud Brunhild, opposes the established order to save Siegfried, but by disobeying Wotan is she not fulfilling her father’s dearest wish? The other hero is a highly mystical one, Parsifal, presented as the saviour of a community of knights, whose strengths are exhausted. Valiant and pure, Parsifal is presented as a messiah embodying a better world, a new order. To a certain extent, Richard Wagner could have been all these characters at once, he lost himself in love and also wanted to create a new world of music, sometimes called in his time “the music of the future”.


Concert in German with surtitles in French and English
