Tristan und Isolde, Part I: by Richard Wagner; David Edgar Walther, bass-baritone/pianist with Acting Singers Project; King Marke, now old & drunk, narrates the story of his wife & best friend. Drew Poling as Tristan.
Text: Cast your eyes on him (Tristan), the most faithful of the loyal. the dearest of friends. His deed pierced my heart with its hostile treachery!
Apology: Wagner was a terrible person who held some horrendous beliefs, but he also produced some beautiful musical moments. We celebrate those brief points of light!
