The Scene:

Cornwall and Brittany, and aboard Tristan’s ship, in the mythic past.

The Story:

The knight Tristan is a close friend of his uncle Mark, King of Cornwall. While escorting the spirited Irish princess Isolde to be King Mark’s bride, Tristan ignites her wrath and much more. Both Tristan and Isolde try to resist their unspoken attraction, but when they mistakenly share a love potion, no force can temper their relentless desire for each other. Death is the only realm vast enough to encompass their passion.
