Thomas Malory[edit]

In Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, there's the story of Sir Tristram and La Beale Isoud (La Belle Isolde). Shouldn't there be a reference to that in this article? X10 (talk) 21:35, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

What's the evidence that Wagner used Malory's version in addition to those mentioned in the article? -- kosboot (talk) 17:49, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
No. Wagner didn't use this source and so it's not relevant to this article on his opera.--Dogbertd (talk) 22:55, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Schopnhr[edit]

Another influence of the philosopher of pessimism was his doctrine that music should be primary and libretto merely secondary. This was in opposition to Wagner’s former notion of Gesamtkunstwerk in which they both held equal status.173.72.63.150 (talk) 23:10, 25 October 2013 (UTC) John Rance

"Mild und leise" is not an aria[edit]

"Mild und leise" is not an aria as it is stated in the article. In fact there is no aria in Tristan und Isolde. It is an opera with continuous music. There are no well-shaped bordered arias. Thanks. Abbatai 04:29, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

this article needs more references[edit]

There are paragraphs throughout the article that do not have any footnotes at all. Specifically, in the following sections:

  • Composition history (3 paragraphs)
  • Premiere (2 paras)
  • Performance history (entire section)
  • Significance in the development of romantic music (last para)
  • Roles (needs a reference for the premiere cast)
  • Instrumentation
  • Influence of Schopenhauer on Tristan und Isolde (2nd para)
  • Recordings (4th para)
  • Concert extracts and arrangements (1st para)

Please do not remove the maintenance tag until these have been addressed. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 22:13, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
