Auditorio de Tenerife is bringing Grand Théâtre de Genève Ballet Company  with the show Tristan and Isolde, to be performed on 2 and 3 February at 7:00 pm in Sala Sinfónica. Tickets to enjoy a dance version of this love story are now on sale at 15% discount on the standard ticket price.

With this version of Tristan and Isolde, the choreographer of the production, Joëlle Bouvier, once more explores an iconic piece by Richard Wagner. After presenting her Romeo and Juliet, she now displays on stage moments of rupture as hatred rubs shoulders with the flames of extreme passion. Suffering and antagonism seem to be best resolved at night, at death.

Joëlle Bouvier has chosen to make some elements more abstract in order not to tell a story that rings too narrative or realistic. “To illustrate this epic drama, I’ve envisioned a simple scenery where a spiral staircase evokes a ship or a castle and a rope symbolizes the philtre that holds the lovers inevitably together”, the French dancer explains.

The piece is expressed through a more oneiric and metaphorical writing to depict its main themes: love, disturbed love, betrayal, resentment and forgiveness. That is why, as Bouvier explains, “some simple wooden planks recall the forest, a wall or a room and the great iridescent blue pieces of fabric that move evoke sea waves… All these stage elements suggest rather than show”.

The cast is led by Madeline Wong, in the role of princess Isolde, and Geoffrey Van Dyck, who plays young Tristan. Also, Armando Gonzalez Besa plays King Mark and Sara Shigenari is the Witness. Other dancers include Yumi Aizawa, Céline Allain, Louise Bille, Ornella Capece, Diana Duarte, Léa Mercurol, Tiffany Pacheco, Mohana Rapin, Lysandra Van Heesewijk, Valentino Bertolini, Natan Bouzy, Zachary Clark, Xavier Juyon, Nathanäel Marie, Juan Pérez, Simone Repele, Sasha  Riva and Nahuel Vega.
