Opera North: Parsifal

Richard Farnes conductor | PJ Harris director | Akhila Krishnan video designer

Richard Wagner Parsifal (concert staging)

Toby Spence Parsifal | Katarina Karnéus Kundry | Brindley Sherratt Gurnemanz | Robert Hayward Amfortas | Eric Greene Klingsor


Uncover the tale of the knights who guard the Holy Grail

Amfortas, lord of the Grail knights, suffers physically from a wound inflicted upon him by the sorcerer Klingsor, and spiritually from the burden of sin: he allowed himself to be seduced in Klingsor’s magical realm by a beautiful woman. With no cure to be found, the community of the Grail is threatened with disintegration. The only hope lies in a prophecy: that one day all may be redeemed by an innocent fool made wise by compassion.

Richard Wagner said that Parsifal was his ‘farewell to the world’, and so it proved. It was his final opera, and the overwhelming power and beauty of his music reaches new heights of intensity in this work. This concert staging will be conducted by former music director Richard Farnes, whose performances of the Opera North Ring cycle in 2016 met with universal acclaim.
