Tristan und Isolde

Um, operas sung in a language not native to where they are set? Carmen, set in Spain, is sung in French. Tristan und Isolde, set in Britain/Ireland, is sung in German. And Turandot, set in Persia, is sung in Italian.

I realize they are sometimes sung in different languages. I have a recording of Carmen in German, which is almost laughable. But the respective operas were written in those languages.

Also, I have all three on CD in my car. :-)

Good work! (And I'm very impressed that you have them on CD. I think I only have Carmen and even then, it's just highlights, not the full opera.)

And now I have the Tristan chord stuck in my head.
