Richard Wagner's Tannhäuser

  • 186 mins
Orchestra of the San Carlo Theatre, Naples

The original title, "Tannhäuser und der Sangerkrieg auf Watburg," reveals the real nature of the opera, born by a fusion of two traditional sagas and dedicated to the dualism of spirituality and sensuality and the possibility of redemption through love. Composed between 1843 and 1845 when Wagner was just over 30, Tannhäuser has a tormented musical theme, made up of constant variations. Just before the opera's 1845 debut in Dresden, Wagner enhanced its power by strengthening the finale.
