This 1961, Wieland Wagner directed Tannhauser, conducted by Wolfgang Sawallisch, stars Victoria de los Angeles as Elisabeth and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (at his last Bayreuth Festival) in the role of Wolfram.

This discovery in the radio archives of a Tannhauser from the first of the subsequent performances to a less-than-optimal initial performance is an incredible find and is here released on CD in the series of historical recordings of the Bayreuth Festival.

By a stroke of luck, all the protagonists were on form on this early August evening, as can now be heard for the first time.
