by Hugh Macdonald commissioned by BLO
BLO presents the fully-staged Boston premiere of Swiss composer Frank Martin's retelling of the much-told story of Tristan. In this gripping work, we hear the medieval tale of the fateful love potion that binds him to Isolt, the woman torn between duty and love. Praised for her luminous voice, Boston favorite soprano Chelsea Basler returns in this unforgettable role. A new production directed by David Schweizer (The Emperor of Atlantis).
