Metropolitan Opera Parsifal
Parsifal is a three act opera by Richard Wagner. It takes its plot from the poem “Parzival” penned by Wlolfram von Eschenbach unraveling the story of the Holy Grail. Parsifal’s history traces back to 1857 when Wagner first came up with the work which took twenty-five years for its completion. Thus in 1882 the opera conducted by Hermann Levi premiered at the Bayreuth Festival. The overwhelming response resulted in around sixteen performances in the next two years. The opera did add to Wagner’s prestige and status. Edward Hanslick stated “Wagner’s creative powers? For a man of his age and his method they are astounding”. On the other hand, Felix Weingartner found the singing “incomparable”. The opera comprises several characters. Some of them are; Parsifal, Kundry, Amfortas (the ruler of the Grail Kingdom), Gurnemanz (a veteran knight of the Grail), two Grail Knights etc. Since the opera has repeatedly opened to favorable response in the past, the Metropolitan Opera Parsifal will undoubtedly be another praise-worthy attempt.
