Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ludwig Schnorr von Carolsfeld (July 2, 1836 - July 21, 1865) was a German Heldentenor and the creator of the role of Tristan in Richard Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde. His promising career was curtailed by a serious illness which killed him at the age of 29, after only four performances in the role of Tristan. Ludwig Schnorr von Carolsfeld was born in Munich, a son of the famous painter Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld. Later, he became a pupil of Kreuzschule in Dresden, home of the Dresdner Kreuzchor (choir). This may have influenced his decision not to follow the family tradition of becoming a professional painter but to study singing instead, and he took voice lessons at the Leipzig Conservatory.
