Aha, there are you two talking about Tannhäuser! Mechtild, your comment in the Harem had searching me for said conversation and I discovered the *most* heart-breaking screencaps through it. Thank you for all your work - Frolijah is a wonder, and you make it all the more visible.
Estë and Mechtild, you might be interested in this website: http://www.neuschwanstein.de/english/castle/legends/tannhaeuser.htm. It gives a good description of the ancient legend of Tannhäuser, without the changes Wagner made for his opera (it is one of his earlier works and full of wonderful arias). Tannhäuser was the second Wagner opera I got to know; IIRC, I was just 15 when I heard (and saw) "Parsifal" for the first time. I couldn't understand it back then, but I was completely overwhelmed and immediately obsessed with this fiery music. And this hasn't changed until today.
There are some German Tannhäuser TV productions, Estë Of The Ravishing Avatars, but I'm not sure whether they are available on DVD or video. (I could try and find out for you, if you like)

Oh! The music to Parsifal TEARS ME UP!!! I just love Kundry's arias. Talk about piling on the angst!!!

Thanks so much for that link about the Neuschwanstein website, Whiteling! It didn't seem to copy properly, though, so I'm going to repeat it here:


I love how Tannhauser in the illustration has his eyes glued on the Venusberg.:)

And your remark about "discovering" the screencaps alerted me to the fact that I had never put an "ad" in the Harem about them. I try to do that, for the Frodo fans not on LJ. I'll go do it at once!

Tannhäuser yay!

Thank you for the link Whiteling!

I would be most grateful if you could let me know if ‘Tannhäuser’ is available on DVD or video. *hugs*
