The Washington National Opera (WNO) and the Virginia Opera both spring into action this month as their 2013-2014 seasons get underway. WNO is first out the gate, opening its season at the Kennedy Center Opera House this coming Sunday afternoon with a matinee performance of Richard Wagner's epic love story, "Tristan und Isolde."

The company will continue its autumn stanza with performances of Giuseppe Verdi's infrequently performance "La forza del destino" ("The Force of Destiny"), set to open at the Opera House on October 12. This opera's opening night coincides almost to the day with the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth, generally assumed to have occurred on October 9 or 10, 1813.
