Program Notes

Tannhäuser (full title Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg, "Tannhäuser and the Minnesingers' Contest at Wartburg") is an 1845 opera in three acts, music and text by Richard Wagner, (WWV 70 in the catalogue of the composer's works) based on two German legends: Tannhäuser, the mythologized medieval German Minnesänger and poet, and the tale of the Wartburg Song Contest.

The story centers on the struggle between sacred and profane love, and redemption through love, a theme running through much of Wagner's mature work.

The opera remains a staple of major opera house repertoire in the 21st century.
