Richard Wagner's Tristan and Isolde

Richard Wagner's opera Tristan and Isolde (variously spelled as Tristan and Isolda, Tristan and Yseult, or Tristan and Ysolt) is the Romeo and Juliet of German opera. The mere mention of the names gives the connotation of unhappy lovers in a secret relationship with an unhappy ending. There are many versions of the story available that almost everyone has at least some idea of what is going on which makes it one of the ‘easier’ works by Richard Wagner to watch and actually know what is happening on stage.


Hot Cheap Halloween Costumes

This is a special for all you pumpkin heads. Halloween is coming any moment now and the usual trouble is the decision what to wear.

Narcissus was naked when looking into the pond, for instance. Or maybe a mask is all you need to wear.
