Videó bezárása

In Parsifal, his final music drama, Wagner addresses the fear of earthly temptations and sinful desires by embedding them in a tale of redemption. The composer depicts this spiritual theme with a personal tone mixing religious and profane conceptions of love. “Just wait! Wagner’s not long for this world! A man who is capable of producing a thing of that order cannot have much time left on earth!” This was the reaction of the director of Leipzig’s theatre, who was particularly affected by the power of the sensual seduction dressed up as an Easter ceremony and the mysterious mixture of faith and music.
The Opera timed the staging of the new production specifically for the Christian Season. Responsible for its visual world is Sebastian Hannak, who also designed those of Porgy and Bess and The Fairy Queen. Artistic Director András Almási-Tóth will direct, and Principal Musical Director Balázs Kocsár will conduct.
