A Romantic Opera
After nearly 65 years, the romantic opera by Richard Wagner is returning to the stage of the NDKE Opera, whose full title is "Tannhäuser and the Minnesängers' Contest at Wartburg". Wagner composed this opera during his Dresden period, where he worked as a conductor, and it premiered in 1845. He was inspired by the folk ballad of Tannhäuser, the mythical Venusberg, and the goddess Venus, who sometimes appeared as Frau Holda in medieval legend, a Nordic goddess of the underworld Hel.
