Peter Sellars’ Tristan und Isolde at the COC

Kudos have to go to the COC for brining in world renowned theatre and opera director Peter Sellars to direct Wagner’s difficult, pro to-modern masterpiece.

So, don’t complain we never get world class spectacle in Toronto…and go see this show. I think that you can even get cheap, rush tickets so don’t use the bohemian excuse 🙂

Here’s a preview from the Toronto Star
