Summary
Accompanied by his slave Rosen, Tristan journeys to Ireland to bring Isolda back to be the bride of his uncle, King Mark of Cornwall. Rosen, however, is jealous of her master's attentions to Isolda and attempts to poison Tristan. At the last minute, the poison is changed to a love potion, which both Tristan and Isolda drink. Once back in Cornwall, the two run off and are denounced by Rosen. King Mark is, however, moved out of pity for their youth and pardons Tristan and Isolda, but the two, realizing that they cannot overcome their love, commit suicide.
