Tristan und Isolde

Tristan und Isolde: Waltraud Meier, Kwangchul Youn, Robert Dean Smith Tristan und Isolde: Petra Lang, Waltraud Meier Tristan und Isolde: Waltraud Meier, Robert Dean Smith
Richard Wagner

The most beautiful of all Wagner operas. Musical high erotic flair: two people, who still have a score to settle with one another, drink a love potion instead of poison. They are caught in flagrante, following which there is longing to the point of love-death. Careful: there's an addiction hazard here even for non-Wagnerians. "Drown – sink down!" Tristan in Munich's National Theatre, the site of its world première. The grand musical experience.
