Tristan und Isolde with Dorothée Gilbert and Mathieu Ganio

Isolde’s last words at the end of the opera: “To drown, to founder - unconscious - utmost rapture!” are the source of inspiration for the choreographer who has called upon Dorothée Gilbert and Mathieu Ganio, both étoile dancers at the Opéra National de Paris, to form a duo in the hour long performance of Tristan und Isolde. The two exceptional dancers are a perfect fit for the characters of Tristan and Isolde, in whom Giorgio Mancini wishes to breathe life into their souls during an evening of passion and emotion.
