Tales from the Opera - Tristan and Isolde

"Imagination creates reality" - Richard Wagner

This week, we celebrate the bi-centenary of the composer who, like a god, re-created opera according to his vision. Tristan und Isolde, Wagner's epic of boundless yearning, features in a superb recording under Karl Böhm.

(Recording: Deutsche Grammophon 449 772-2. Wolfgang Windgassen, Birgit Nilsson, Martti Talvela. Chor & Orchester der Bayreuther Festspiele/ Karl Böhm)
