Christof Hetzer’s suggestive sets for Pierre Audi’s Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner were first seen at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris and at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma in 2016 where the production was largely acclaimed. The production is now at the Dutch National Opera of Amsterdam, where it can be seen until February 14.
