Published by John Calder Publications

English National Opera Guides are ideal companions to the opera, providing stimulating introductory articles together with the complete text of each opera in English and the original

'A Landmark in Musical History' is John Luke Rose's title for the introduction to the extraordinary piece of theatre that is Tristan and Isolde

It belongs to the German tradition of mystical writing and a short note on the poem itself by Martin Swales and Timothy McFarland elucidates some of Wagner's literary techniques

Anthony Negus, who assisted Reginald Goodall on the WNO production of this opera, has contributed a penetrating analysis of the musical structure of the opera

Patrick Carnegy assesses the remarkable solutions to staging an opera which some argue is best experienced with your back to the performers!
