Richard Wagner: Parsifal - Staatsoper Berlin

submitted by Marvin's Underground Music Ondemand on 05/08/18 1

Parsifal represents the culmination of Wagner's work as a revolutionary composer of opera. In it he created a powerful allegory on the conflict between Christianity and paganism, good and evil, light and dark, physical passion and spiritual abstinence. This dramatic production by the brilliant German stage director Harry Kupfer marked Daniel Barenboim's appointment as the artistic director of the Berlin State Opera in 1992. The cast is made up of the finest Wagnerian singers of the period, all of whom enjoyed substantial international careers. Barenboim's superb conducting reveals Wagner's multi-layered score in all its glory. Staging: Harry Kupfer. Parsifal: Poul Elming; Amfortas: Falk Struckmann; Gurnemanz: John Tomlinson; Kundry: Waltraud Meier; Klingsor: Günter von Kannen; Titurel: Fritz Hübner Flowermaidens: Carola Höhn, Brigitte Eisenfeld, Borjana Mateewa, Carola Nossek, Laura Aikin, Elvira Dreßen; Knights: Peter Bindszus, Gerd Wolf; Squires: Peter Menzel, Andreas Schmidt, Elvira Dreßen, Efrat Ben-Nun; Alto: Rosemarie Lang.
