In a short one-act opera encapsulating the tensions and challenges of humanities and sciences coexisting in a university setting, a lecturer in English and Professor of genetics debate the essence and relevance of their disciplines, which becomes a metaphor for their star-crossed relationship, as parodied by a retelling of the Tristan and Isolde love story. Composed by Haris Vrontos with a libretto by John Ioannidis, Professor of Medicine at Stanford. Performed at Toyon Hall, Stanford in celebration of its founding 100 years ago.
