Eni and the Orchestra Sinfonica dell'Europa Unita come together for the Concert Film "Tristan and Isolde, Eros and Thanatos: a never-ending flame", in a world premier performance, on 17 May, at the Auditorium Conciliazione in Rome.
For the premier, the soloists will appear simultaneously in both the live performance and in the Concert Film projects in the background to highlight the most important scenes in the opera.
Played by the prestigious 60-piece Orchestra, Tristan and Isolde will be an intense performance dedicated to love.
The virtuoso moments of the concert version will be in the hands of the solo violinist, Marco Rogliano in the role of Tristan and the pianist, Rossana Tomassi Golkar in the role of Isolde.
The Concert Film used for the occasion is a type of documentary film combined with a live performance of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde for Piano and Orchestra, with the projection of film clips and images. The whole event is an innovative artistic collaboration between different artistic registers that come together in an intense interchange of great originality, able to provide the audience with a unique artistic experience made up of engaging film language and deeply fascinating music.
The result will be a medium-length film in which the dramatic Wagnerian atmosphere of "Tristan and Isolde" will be evoked in a new and untried form in which the musicians become actors and play the fatal characters of the drama, immortalised on video to be used and virtual scenic backdrops during the performance of the opera.
Love with all its drama, and the central role of the woman, are the basic themes of the opera and down the ages right up to the present.
