Time Out says

Composed in 1859, this romantic opera in three parts by Richard Wagner is now considered one of the most influential pieces of music of all time. Based on a tragic tale of love told as far back as the 12th century, the story centres on an adulterous love affair between the Cornish knight Tristan and the Irish princess Izolde. In Wagner's version, Tristan is portrayed as a doomed romantic figure, while Izolde appears as a redeeming female character in classic Wagnerian fashion. The opera is directed by renowned American director Anna Bogart.
