About the programme

When it comes to the great tragic romances, Romeo and Juliet are the unrivalled front-runners. Hector Berlioz set their story to music in 1839 as a symphonie dramatique. A quarter of a century later, Richard Wagner followed up with another legendary pair of lovers: Tristan and Isolde. None other than Giuseppe Verdi said of the opera’s second act, which will be performed that evening: »This second act is wonderful, wonderful, inexpressibly wonderful.« So this programme is about nothing other than the most inexhaustible theme of mankind – and with two of the greatest sound magicians in music history to boot. Berlioz, Wagner and the traces of love are also followed by composer Charlotte Bray – with a new piece commissioned by the DSO.
