Tristan and Isolde

A tale based on a 12th century troubadour song, which became a legend in the middle ages, spread around France, England, and Germany--all of Europe.

A beautiful love story, set in the chivalric middle ages.

King Mark of Cornwall has a nephew named Tristan who excels in the arts of war.

One day, the King of the nation of Ireland approaches Mark with a proposal to solve a problem he has with paying his tribute. If he accepts, one of his men will battle with the Irish King's servant Morholt, and if he wins, his tribute is unnecessary. Morholt's strong sword arm is fearful, an no one will battle him until Tristan comes forward, battles him and defeats him.

Tristan's great renown echoes throughout all the land, and King Mark in particular casts an eye on him. King Mark, it happens, has another nephew named Melot. Melot does not care for Tristan's fame. He plots with the jester Frocine a way to get Tristan expelled.

As part of the plot, Tristan is dispatched to fetch Isolde, daughter of the king of Ireland, who will become King Mark's wife. The plan is for Tristan to kill the Irish envoy, after which he will not be allowed to return alive.

In the fantastical forests of Ireland, there dwells a dragon who threatens the people. No matter what he has tried, the Irish king has gotten nowhere with the dragon, so he promises whatever they want to whomever can defeat it. Tristan quickly defeats the dragon and is successful in claiming the princess Isolde for his queen.

However, love begins to bloom between the gallant Tristan and the beautiful Isolde. Then the princess's servant gives them a love potion by mistake, and the love becomes a devouring flame.

One day, King Mark brings Merlot on a hunting trip, and orders Tristan to fill his place while they are gone. At last Merlot has his chance to reveal Tristan and Isolde's relationship, and they return unexpectedly. The betrayed king is enraged and exiles Tristan.

And Tristan meets and rescues the daughter of Duke Hoel of Brittany in a tavern. She is known as Isolde of the White Hands. Eventually, the two marry.

However, Tristan cannot forget Queen Isolde, and after a year of living separately from his wife he steals into the castle at Cornwall for a glimpse of the queen.

However, he is soon discovered by King Mark, and receives a serious wound at Merlot's sword. He barely is able to flee to the castle at Kareol, and will only be saved by the secret medicine the Queen Isolde has.....


A dynamic jazz dance show choreographed by the famous Paddy Stone, riding on the rhythms of west Africa.
