Parsifal

Richard Wagner: Parsifal. Nikolai Schukoff, John Tomlinson Richard Wagner: Parsifal Richard Wagner: Parsifal
Richard Wagner

Who's afraid of the Bühnenweihfestspiel? Will Parsifal manage to bring the sacred spear back to the Knights of the Grail? Will he resist the blandishments of the primal sorceress "Kundry". Does salvation exist? Does compassion bring knowledge? Wagner's late work not as artificial religion – but rather as critical music theatre. Peter Konwitschny's production: admired, cheered and hotly controversial. A scandal? Well, judge for yourself.
