LA MONNAIE DE MUNT

Opera

Parsifal

Richard Wagner

Presentation
One of the finest monuments ever erected to the glory of music— Claude Debussy

Even today, Parsifal, Richard Wagner’s musical testament, remains veiled in a mysterious aura. The wound and the passion, nothingness and light, profane and spiritual love: what lies behind the contradictions in this tale of the ‘pure fool’ who, armed only with his own naivety, goes in search of the Holy Grail? It was precisely the infinity of possible interpretations of this Bühnenweihfestspiel that fascinated the director Romeo Castellucci when he tackled his first opera production in 2011. Ten years later, this iconic production returns to the opera house where it was premiered. This time, it will be conducted by our Music Director, Alain Altinoglu, who – following his success in Lohengrin and Tristan und Isolde – continues his own Wagnerian quest. This will be no mere revival.
