PARSIFAL

Parsifal, Wagners last music drama, has had a special place in opera history ever since its world première. The work, which Wagner described as “Bühnenweihfestspiel” (sacred festival drama), builds a bridge towards religion by creating a stylistic religion of art. The central theme is compassion: Parsifal, the chosen future redeemer, needs to discover empathic feeling in the course of the drama. Thus he can not only save others but become the grail king.
