Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment

The real spinning carousel in this production is love. That, for better and worse, is what makes nature churn - and the world go round - in this show's blissful, anguished universe.

Why See Metropolitan Opera: Parsifal?

A pure fool, englightened by compassion

Met music Director Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducts Francois Girard's timeless production of Richard Wagner's Arthurian, the epic returns to the Met this season in a welcome revival starring commended European tenor Klaus Florian Vogt as the titular Parsifal, a Knight who sets out on a mystical quest to save the realm and his King from the evil sorcerer Klingsor.

In true Wagnerian style Parsifal is a lavish and monumental work. The composer's final masterpiece, it is replete with strange prophecy, religious symbolism, disguise, seduction and action, all of the hallmarks of a winning and unforgettable experience.

French Canadian Girard draws on his filmic career to create a surreal post apocalyptic landscape, designed by Michael Levine, where the Knights own journeys to save their ailing leader are melded into a quest for their very soul against harrowing circumstances.

Don't miss this much anticipated and rare work from the canon, and don't forget the Bayreuth convention, a tradition of not applauding after the first act that grew from the audiences confusion at Wagner's directions on the opera's first outing!
