Program notes

Swem nie von liebe leit geschach, dem geschach ouch liep von liebe nie.” (“He that never had sorrow of love never had joy of it either!”) —Gottfried von Strassburg, Tristan

Experience the heart-wrenching second act of Wagner’s timeless Tristan und Isolde performed by some of the most accomplished opera specialists! From the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the National Symphony Orchestra and its superb music director Gianandrea Noseda join forces with inimitable heroic tenor Stephen Gould and star American soprano Christine Goerke, whose “cool, focused voice, abundant power, [and] chilling top notes” bring “anguished beauty to her singing” (The New York Times).
