Isolde, daughter of the king of Ireland, on her way to be married to King Mark of Cornwall, confronts Tristan, the king's nephew, who had killed Morold, the champion of Ireland, to whom she was betrothed. She offers him a drink of atonement, in fact poison, intending that they should die together, but her attendant Brangäne has substituted a love potion. Tristan and Isolde fall into each other's arms as the ship reaches land and King Mark approaches to claim his bride. In Cornwall, as Mark and his men are hunting, Tristan and Isolde meet secretly in the garden. Despite Brangane’s warnings, they are surprised by Melot who calls King Mark. Tristan is wounded by Mark’s soldiers. Delirious at his ancestral castle in Brittany accompanied by his friend Kurwenal, he waits for Isolde, but dies as she arrives. Isolde is transfigured as she joins Tristan in death.
