Parsifal: Deutsche Oper Berlin

About the Event

The premiere of Richard Wagner's Parsifal, his Bühnenweihfestspiel or 'festival drama for the consecration of the stage', represented the climax of festivities to mark the 100th anniversary of the Deutsche Oper Berlin in 2012.

Parsifal is Richard Wagner's own mythical tale, which he created borrowing freely from a diverse range of sagas, Christian and Buddhist motifs, and Schopenhauer's ideas. Wagner was plagued for decades by a fear of disaster and a constant thirst for redemption. With his Parsifal he addressed head‐on the question of redemption, both private and social, and conjured his own utopia in the chaste, male world of the Knights of the Grail.

In German language with German and English surtitles.
