Quotes & Highlights

“[Mr. Domingo’s] singing has seldom seemed so poignant nor his artistry more meaningful.” —New York Times

Description

Avant-garde theater artist Robert Wilson’s visionary production is a breathtaking universe of suggestive allegory, where time becomes space in a ritualized dream-play atmosphere.

The internationally acclaimed cast includes: tenor Placido Domingo as Parsifal, the “innocent fool” who embarks upon a mystical journey of self-discovery. Bass-baritone Albert Dohmen is Amfortas, the tortured guardian of the Holy Grail. Bass Matti Salminen is Gurnemanz, eager to find a savior in the most unlikely of men. Soprano Linda Watson returns as the alluring Kundry and bass Hartmut Welker is the pagan Klingsor, who creates a magical garden of Flower Maidens to trap the Knights of the Grail.
