Phone: 919-792-3853
Price: $25.43-$85.38


In the opera Tristan and Isolde, Wagner wanted to transcend the idea of mere love story. He took the affair of the princess and the nobleman who kills her lover and steals her heart to a metaphysical level; here, love creates and destroys the world. Wagner left the third and final part of his massive Ring Cycle unfinished for five years to build this piece, whose Symbolist libretto and score helped inspire the tonal innovations of 20th century composers such as Schoenberg and Mahler.

The N.C. Opera presents the prelude and second act in concert. The Grammy Award-winning Jay Hunter Morris, who performed the whole four-opera epic Ring Cycle at the Metropolitan Opera, takes Tristan. Heidi Melton, who stole the show as the Foreign Princess in N.C. Opera's Rusalka last year, is Isolde. Maestro Timothy Myers conducts the 80-piece N.C. Opera Orchestra. 3 p.m. $25.43-$85.38, 2 E. South St., 919-792-3850, —Chris Vitiello
