Tristan and Isolde, 2016, Anish Kapoor

ENO's first new production of Tristan and Isolde since 1966 was directed by Daniel Kramer and conducted by Edward Gardner, with set designs by the world-famous sculptor Anish Kapoor. First performed in 1865, Tristan and Isolde is one of Wagner’s best-loved operas. Based on a medieval legend, it’s a romantic tragedy of love and death, told through sublime music. One of the most significant pieces in the repertoire, Wagner himself described it as ‘the most audacious and original work of my life’.
