Tenor Ben Heppner and soprano Jane Eaglen perform two of opera's most demanding roles in a 1999 production of “Tristan und Isolde,” Richard Wagner's titanic tragedy. Based on a Celtic myth, the 1865 drama charts the passions of the Irish queen Isolde and the Cornish knight Tristan. He's transporting her, against her will, to marry his uncle, King Marke (bass Rene Pape), but the two drink a potion that will ensure both their undying love for each other–-and their deaths. James Levine conducts the Met Orchestra.
