After our wonderfully successful Wagner & Beyond mini festival last year - representing the first chapter in our two-year Wagner project – we are now very excited about our landmark production for WASO’s 90th anniversary year! Last year Principal Conductor Asher Fisch and WASO explored the colossal impact of Wagner’s writing on the history of music in two concerts highly acclaimed by critics and audiences, and we are now in preparations for our much anticipated concert performances of Wagner’s ground-breaking opera Tristan und Isolde.
Tristan und Isolde will deliver Perth audiences a rare chance to hear some of the most glorious music ever written conducted by one of today’s most sought-after Wagner conductors - our very own Asher Fisch. Asher and WASO will be joined by a truly world-class, international cast to deliver what has been described as the ‘musical hub of the wheel’… the seminal story of love and intrigue that has transformed the art form of classical music forever. We invite you to also be transformed!
Tristan & Isolde is an expensive undertaking as the scale of Wagner productions incurs significant costs, and ticket sales will not cover the full cost of the production. We continue to seek support to help fund this bold artistic project, and invite you to be a part of getting these unique concerts to the Perth Concert Hall stage. So if WASO, or Wagner, or our 90th anniversary year or all of the above are important to you, we’d love to hear from you!
Your donation will support our exquisite cast of singers and you will get to enjoy exclusive events and behind-the-scenes experiences, such as a post-performance Tristan und Isolde Cast Party and a special behind-the-scenes tour and exclusive rehearsal at Perth Concert Hall. You will also be acknowledged as a Wagner Patron on the WASO website and in our concert programs.
