Solti brings out all the theatricality and drama of Wagner's colorful score, leading a top-notch cast. Prey is Wolfram, the kind and sympathetic man who loves the virtuous Elisabeth (an impassioned Leonie Rysanek). But she is in love with the rebellious knight Tannhäuser (Hans Hopf), who cannot forget his lustful time with the goddess Venus (Irene Dalis) and is banished for singing her praises at court. When the Pope himself refuses forgiveness for Tannhäuser's sins, he faces damnation--until the saintly Elisabeth's death miraculously redeems his soul
