Segerstrom Stage

A cabaret band plays high above the stage as this classic myth about star-crossed lovers unfolds. King Mark is victorious in battle, and Yseult is destined to be his bride. But when he sends Tristan to bring her back, trouble begins. It’s played out with wild exuberance—and a touch of Tarantino—by Kneehigh, the British company that thrilled audiences with productions like The Wild Bride and Brief Encounter. This is the play that wowed critics (The Huffington Post: “Utterly timeless, delightful and engrossing”) and catapulted Kneehigh into the international spotlight.
