This year the Bulgarian National Opera is arriving from Sofia to perform Tristan und Isolde with world-class musicians. The work was composed between 1857 and 1859 in Zürich, where Wagner was having a passionate but ill-fated love affair with Mathilde Wesendonck. Thus he penned Tristan and Isolde as the artist’s deepest personal opus, an eternal testament to his love. The composer drew elements from the medieval Celtic legend, used as well later by French poets, and Gottfried von Straßburg adapted it for his epic. The poem served as a basis for Wagner, though he edited it heavily.

Aficionados consider Tristan und Isolde to be Wagner’s most emotional and most musical composition.
