His directorial talents embrace opera, theatre, dance, visual arts and film. As he brings Wagner’s “Tristan and Isolde” to the Opera Bastille in Paris, Peter Sellars tells us about the lessons the “total work of art” has to teach us about glimpsing beauty amid the madness. This latest production incorporates Bill Viola’s flickering video art to echo the themes of the opera.
Sellars recounts coming to the center of the art world – Paris – in the 1980s, collaborating with composer Kaija Saariaho to bring colour, tone and vibrations to her contemporary pieces and tells us why opera should always be a pluralistic, inclusive endeavour.
