Wagner Concert at the Monte-Carlo Opera

The bicentenary of the birth of Richard Wagner is celebrated with Tristan and Isolde and The Walkyrie

An inveterate womanizer, spendthrift and revolutionary, Wagner was a trailblazing genius who was much admired by the intellectuals of his time but violently rejected by traditionalists. 

To celebrate the bicentenary of his birth, Monte-Carlo Opera is presenting two acts, from Tristan and Isolde and The Walkyrie.

The juxtaposition of these two acts is not just chance, but portrays Richard Wagner's vision of love - love that is modern, transgressive, absolute and free from the bourgeois values to which Wagner attached little importance.

Friday 8 February 2013 – 8 pm
Sunday 10 February 2013 – 3 pm
Conducted by Jonas Alber
