Video recording directed by Stéphane Lebard
Duration: 90 minutes
Choreography: Joëlle Bouvier
Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève
Based on Tristan und Isolde, opera in three acts by Richard Wagner
“Salute for me the world, my father and my mother, and bring the beverage, pour it in the golden cup”. This is the way Isolde bids farewell to her Lady Brangäne, waiting for Tristan to drink the death potion, turned into a love potion. Partly inspired by the love of Richard Wagner for the poetess Mathilde Wesendonck, the choreography of Salute for me the world offers a drama, based on a unique idea, that contorts in a so smouldering passion it can only ends by a tragic deliverance.
