Jan 21, 2016

The Metropolitan Opera continues its 85th season of live Saturday matinee broadcasts this week with Wagner's Tannhäuser. The Met describes this classic work as follows: "Tannhäuser takes place in and around Wartburg Castle, in Thuringia in central Germany, and in the mythical grotto of Venus, the goddess of love. Wartburg was the setting of a—possibly legendary—13th-century song contest as well as the home of Saint Elisabeth of Hungary (1207–1231), wife of the Landgrave of Thuringia.
