Wolf Trap Opera and Washington Concert Opera are thrilled to co-present a rare modern retelling of the classic Tristan and Isolde story. In its more than 60-year history, Swiss composer Frank Martin’s Le vin herbé
(based on Joseph Bédier’s novel Tristan and Iseult
) has enjoyed countless concert performances and several staged productions. In recent years, it has been seen in Zurich, Paris and Berlin. This performance at The Barns will be a concert staging. The cast includes ten Wolf Trap Opera alumni, including Ian Koziara and Shannon Jennings who are featured respectively as Tristan and Isolde.
