Notes & Reviews:
Bel Air Classiques presents Wagner's mystic masterpiece "Parsifal" in a brilliant staging by Dmitri Tcherniakov in the spectacular Staatsoper Berlin. Wagner's last completed opera, it was begun in April of 1857 but wasn't completed until twenty-five years later. It is loosely based on the 13th century epic poem Parzival by Wolfran von Eschenbach, in which an Arthurian knight quests for the Holy Grail. Wagner referred to this work as a "festival play for the consecration of the stage," rather than an opera. This international cast of outstanding singers lights up the stage, and Daniel Barenboim's interpretation of the score shimmers in the spotlight.Notes & Reviews:
