Richard Wagner's opera Tannhäuser was first performed in Dresden in 1845, and this version was published in 1860; it is known as the Dresden version.

When the opera was performed in Paris in 1861, Wagner made some amendments, and later a few further changes were made for a performance in Vienna in 1875. The opera as performed in Vienna is generally known as the Paris version.
