“I was absolutely fascinated by the story, it is so strange, even a little naïve – and this incredible love... I also discovered that Wagner had fallen in love with Mathilde Wesendonk, the wife of his patron at the time he was writing about the forbidden love of Tristan and Isolde. It was all so connected!”
~ Krzysztof Pastor on "Tristan and Isolde"
