Auditorio de Tenerife presents Tristan and Isolde by Ballet of Grand Théâtre De Genève.

"Greet the world for me!". This is Isolde’s farewell to Brangäne while she waits for Tristan to drink the atonement that is actually a love-potion.  Joëlle Bouvier once again explores this great myth in Richard Wagner’s music. After presenting her Romeo and Juliet, she now displays on stage moments of rupture as hatred rubs shoulders with the flames of extreme passion. Suffering and antagonism seem to be best resolved at night, at death.  Passion rules over everything and music, "the air that never dies ", brings the two lovers together. Joëlle Bouvier has chosen to make some elements more abstract in order not to tell a story that rings too narrative or realistic. The piece is expressed through a more oneiric and metaphorical writing to depict its main themes: love, disturbed love, betrayal, resentment and forgiveness.


Major recordings of Wagner’s opera will be played during the performance.
