Richard Wagner (1813–83) was one of the most significant figures in the history of opera. His works are widely acknowledged as a pinnacle of the operatic repertoire and remain an exhilarating challenge for any opera house.

Wagner controlled all aspects of his theatrical works, writing both the music and the librettos of his operas, giving instructions for scenic design, staging, and action, and conducted most of their premieres. His aesthetic ideal was what he called a Gesamtkunstwerk (“total work of art”), meaning a work in which all art forms are united in the service of drama.

The libretto of Tristan and Iseult is based largely on the 12th-century romance by Gottfried von Strassburg, one of the greatest medieval German poets.
