Tannhäuser is one of Richard Wagner’s most controversial operas. Its origins were highly complex, as can be seen by the two versions that appeared fifteen years apart: its debut in Dresden in 1845 and its Parisian première in 1861, where it received a chilly reception from the public owing to the disapproval of French intellectual circles at that time. The opera combines two independent Nordic sagas – that of the poet Tannhäuser and of the Minstrels’ contest at the Wartburg. Compared to the more traditional Flying Dutchman it is in this opera that the composer refined his compositive style and dramaturgical skills.
