Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner( Visual )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in German and English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The minstrel Tannhäuser, grown weary of the pagan revelries in the court of Venus, longs for salvation. Repudiating the goddess, he finds himself at the Wartburg where he meets the saintly Elisabeth who encourages his quest for redemption. Journeying to Rome, Tannhäuser is rejected when told by the Pope that he could no more be forgiven his sins than could the papal staff break into flower. Returning to the Wartburg to die, Tannhäuser expires as a pilgrim band enters, proclaiming the miracle that the Pope's staff has blossomed

Tannhäuser : opera in 3 acts by Richard Wagner( Visual )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Alden's production is far removed from traditional representations, seeing Tannhäuser's conflict in choosing between earthly pleasures and spiritual aspirations as a metaphor for the artist's struggle to unleash his creativity. He stirs up the visionary, erotic and archetypal elements in Wagner's work. The cold forbidding aspect of the stylised and predominantly monochrome sets and costumes by Roni Toren and Buki Shiff manifest the straitjacket of tradition that Tannhäuser seeks to free himself from. Filmed over three days by the National Theatre in Munich with the Bayerische Staatsoper conducted by Zubin Mehta and sung by many of today's leading Wagnerian singers.'--SBS Television programme guide Aerial
