Tristan und Isolde 1917O'Mara Grand Opera Company

Read more about the opera Tristan and Isolde

The O'Mara company tended to stick to Tannhäuser when it came to performing Wagner, so it is good to see Tristan on what was probably its first trip north of the central belt (and last until Scottish Opera's 1973 staging).

Dundee audiences were no doubt interested to see 'local boy' William Anderson in a prominent part.

Cast details are taken from reviews in the Dundee Advertiser and Dundee Courier & Argus, for Friday 30 March.

Further tour dates to be confirmed.
