Tristan und Isolde, a first-time for Wagner on What's Opera, Doc?

As usual, What's Opera Doc airs 10AM-1PM EST, or -500 GMT.

Turesdays opera is Wagners Tristan und Isolde - and a first for the show - in 3 years, this is my first Wagner outing.

Pappano conducts in Covent Garden, and the recording features Placido Domingo, Nina Stemme, Mihoko Fujimara, Olaf Bar, Rene Pape, Ian Bostridge and Rolando Villazon.

Plots for Wagner are convoluted, so here is a synopsis.

This is a great introduction to opera. Pass it on to your friends who just can't see the magic of it.
