The Tristan Mysteries

WNYC presents The Tristan Mysteries, a week long in-depth examination of one of Richard Wagner's most brilliant and enigmatic operas. Highlights include interviews with playwright Terrance McNally; anthropologist Helen Fisher; adult film actress/"Vivid Girl" (and Wagner fanatic) Savanna Samson; choreographer Mark Morris; and acclaimed video artist Bill Viola.

Crafted as a comprehensive Wagnerian universe to accompany the visionary multi-media Tristan Project at Lincoln Center, The Tristan Mysteries offers something for everyone, from the most perfect Wagnerite to the—as yet uninitiated—novice!
