Tannhäuser

Richard Wagner: Tannhäuser Richard Wagner: Tannhäuser Richard Wagner: Tannhäuser
Richard Wagner

What does a man want? Love or lust? Answer: both!  Tannhäuser has feasted on lust in the realm of Venus. But his excesses are anything but compatible with the strait-laced morality of the society in which he competes in song for Elisabeth's love. That precipitates an uproar …Tannhäuser: artist, outcast – the destiny of an outsider set against the intoxicating power of music at its highest erotic level. A Wagnerian banquet.
