The Teatro dell’Opera di Roma’s 2016/2017 season will open with Richard Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, conducted by Daniele Gatti and directed by Pierre Audi. The work is a co-production of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris and the De Nationale Opera in Amsterdam and the Municipal Theater in Sao Paulo. “I am overjoyed that Maestro Gatti—one of the most popular and acclaimed conductors in major theatres around the world—has agreed to mount the podium at the Costanzi, his very first time in Rome,” says Superintendent Charles Fuortes. “Daniele Gatti is one of the few directors who can truly claim to follow in the great Italian tradition of Toscanini. I’m also pleased that his debut at the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome will be with Wagner’s Tristan. I have no doubt that it will be an unforgettable encounter.” Daniele Gatti has conducted in all of the world’s most important theatres. Sung in Italian and presented with English subtitles.
