Play • 2 hr 3 min
Tannhauser, by Richard Wagner, debuted in 1845 in Dresden Germany, and was subsequently revised twice - debuting in Paris 1861 and again in Vienna in 1875.

The opera is based on two German legends; Tannhäuser, the legendary medieval German Minnesänger and poet, and the tale of the Wartburg Song Contest. The story focuses on the struggle between sacred and profane love, and redemption through love, a theme running through much of Wagner's mature work. (Source: Wikipedia)
