Zum letzten Mal

Information

Parsifal - The divine creation with which, as an artist, Richard Wagner said goodbye to the world. He had finally established himself as one of the greats of German cultural life - a fact underscored by his last opera. Wagner no longer felt he had to adhere to any constraints and, as an artist, was wholly engrossed in his art. Therefore, this “Festival Play” is the “truest” Wagner. It’s authentic, expansive, magical, riveting, challenging and demanding of attention. He recounts the tale of the “pure fool,” Parsifal who is confronted with the difficult task of redeeming the Holy Grail and the Holy Spear and band of Christian knights who had been guarding them against the magician Klingsor.
