Parsifal - Royal Opera House (DVD)
This production of Wagner's Parsifal features Waltraud Meier, Siegfried Jerusalem, Kurt Moll and Bernd Weikl, with James Levine conducting.
A young man ignorant of everything, including his own name, arrives at the Kingdom of the Holy Grail. Is he the ‘pure fool, enlightened by compassion’, who, it has been prophesied, will purify the kingdom?
'It's a solid, moving performance that does virtually everything it should, and the (again) straightforwardness of the production ensures that it's abourt Wagner's intentions rather than some directional conceit . . . I am happy to recommend this Metropolitan Opera "Parsifal", and to reommend it highly'. - Record Review
