The tragic legend of Tristan and Yseut tells a tale of love, loyalty and jealousy. Alla Francesca create an atmosphere of magic and human emotion, singing lais found, with melody, in a Viennese manuscript of the 13th century, which are interspersed with dances and Estampittas of 13thand 14th century Europe.
