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 will feature ten Wolf Trap Opera alumni, and will feature Ian Koziara as Tristan and Shannon Jennings as Isolde.
