Met Opera Encore: Tristan und Isolde (Broadcast Live in HD)
begins with a new production of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, conducted by Sir
Simon Rattle in his first Live in HD performance. Nina Stemme stars as Isolde—a
touchstone role she has sung with major opera companies around the world. Her
Tristan is Australian heldentenor Stuart Skelton, who sang Siegmund in the
Met’s Ring cycle in 2013. The cast also includes Ekaterina Gubanova as Brangäne
and Evgeny Nikitin as Kurwenal (both in Met role debuts), with René Pape
reprising King Marke, a role he has sung to acclaim in three previous Met
seasons. The staging, by Mariusz Treliński (who directed the 2015 Met double
bill of Iolanta and Bluebeard’s Castle) is a co-production with the Festival
Hall Baden-Baden, Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera, and China National
Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) Beijing.
Run Time: 5:15
