Das Liebesverbot is one of Wagner‘s earliest operas - and yet, a central motive of many other works such as Tristan and Isolde is already clearly visible: The overpowering force of love and lust, that no law - manmade or otherwise - can tame. In this new co-production of the Teatro Real Madrid, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden of London and the Teatro Colón of Buenos Aires, we watch Isabella as she strives to free her brother from a cruel death penalty and the city of Palermo from the puritanical, joy-forsaking rule of a German bureaucrat.
