Classical Sunday: Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde

Richard Wagner – Tristan und Isolde

This is the complete opera.  Surely you didn’t have anything else to do for the next 4 hours and 15 minutes but sit back, listen and enjoy?

Tristan und Isolde is an opera in three acts by Richard Wagner to a German libretto by the composer, based largely on the romance by Gottfried von Straßburg.
