Tannhäuser (full title Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg - Tannhäuser and the Minstrel's Contest at the Wartburg) is an 1845 opera in three acts, music and text by Richard Wagner, based on two German legends; Tannhäuser, the legendary medieval German Minnesänger and poet, and the tale of the Wartburg Song Contest. The story centers on the struggle between sacred and profane love, and redemption through love, a theme running through much of Wagner's mature work.
