ACT I Tristan, a valiant Cornish knight, is bringing Isolda,
princess of Ireland, over as a bride for his uncle, King Mark. He
is himself in love with her, but owing to a blood feud between
them, forces himself to conceal his passion. Isolda, in anger at
his seeming unkindness, attempts to poison herself and him, but her
attendant, Brangaena, changes the draft for a love potion, which
enflames their passion beyond power of restraint. ACT II Isolda has
been wedded to King Mark, but holds stolen interviews with Tristan,
during one of which they are surprised, for Tristan has been
betrayed by a jealous friend, Melot. Touched by King Mark's bitter
reproaches, Tristan provokes Melot to fight and suffers himself to
be mortally wounded. ACT III Tristan's faithful servant, Kurvenal,
has carried his wounded master to his native home in Brittany,
where he is carefully tended. Isolda has also been sent for, as
being skilled above all others in the healing art. The excitement
of her approach only hastens Tristan's death, and he breathes his
last sigh in her arms. Mark has followed Isolda; he has had matters
explained, and is prepared to reunite the lovers, but it is too
late. Isolda utters her lament over the body of her lover, and her
heart breaks: in death alone are they united
