Korea National Opera’s most expected piece in 2024

‘Romantic Opera’ with Wagner’s infinite affection

Based on a German legend, Wagner wrote the libretto himself and constantly revised it with affection. An attempt to break away from the Italian opera form, it is a bold opera that depicts the conflict between divine love and sensual pleasure. Wagner himself subtitled it a ‘romantic opera’. The production will be directed by Yona Kim, a Korean director who is actively working in Europe. Yona Kim has directed many Wagnerian operas, including , , and



Spending his days in pleasure with the goddess of love, Venus, Tannhäuser descends back into the human world to experience something new and human. He is reunited with his former lover, the chaste Elizabeth. The town holds a singing contest, and Tannhäuser sings about how a man without experience with the goddess cannot speak of love. Having outraged the people, Tannhäuser embarks on a pilgrimage to Rome to ask for forgiveness. Waiting for him, Elizabeth‘s health deteriorates. Upon arriving in Rome, Tannhäuser, unable to find forgiveness, decides to return to Venus. His friend Wolfram begs him not to go to Venus, but to think of Elizabeth, and Tannhäuser wavers. Venus is furious with him for denying her celestial pleasures and disappears, and with the sound of a bell, Tannhäuser is forgiven.
