Tristan, a ballet written by Krzysztof Pastor and based on the Richard Wagner opera Tristan and Isolde, will have its Polish premiere March 29 at the Wielki Theater in Warsaw.

Recounted in countless versions since the 12th century, the story of Tristan and Isolde, two tragic lovers united only in death, is one of the best-known love stories in European culture. Pastor, a Polish choreographer who works at Het Nationale Ballet in Amsterdam, wrote the ballet for the Royal Swedish Ballet. The world premiere took place in Stockholm two years ago. The music was taken from two works by Robert Wagner, Tristan and Isolde and Wesendonk-Lieder.

The Warsaw production will feature solo dancers and musicians from the National Opera Orchestra and students of the Roman Turczynowicz School of Ballet in Warsaw. Warsaw audiences will see special guest Jan-Erik Wikström as Tristan, while Isolde will be played by Natalia Wojciechowska. Solo vocals will be performed by Anna Lubańska and Agnieszka Rehlis.

March 29, 7 p.m., Wielki Theater/National Opera, 1 Teatralny Sq.
Tickets zl.15-120, www.teatrwielki.pl, www.eventim.pl
