Notes & Reviews:
Parsifal, Wagner’s last opera, is a work of intense humanity. Created in honor of the Wagner bicentenary, Stephen Langridge’s new production, with designs by Alison Chitty, distils with ‘intellectual fiber and visual eloquence’ (Financial Times) the timeless and universal nature of the Parsifal story. Tenor Simon O’Neill stars in the title role. René Pape as Gurnemanz is ‘immaculate’ (Guardian), Gerald Finley as Amfortas is ‘compelling’ (Telegraph) and Angela Denoke as Kundry is ‘dramatically electrifying’ (Telegraph). Antonio Pappano leads the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
