The Wagner’s mystic masterpiece "Parsifal" at Staatsoper Berlin staged by Dmitri
Tcherniakov and conducted by Daniel Barenboim.
Last Wagner’s opera, "Parsifal" is a medieval epic story marked by Christian, Buddhist and esoteric references. It is about redemption and renewal, but this new production by Russian director Dmitri Tcherniakov adds a jarring note: revenge.
This "Festival Play for the Consecration of the Stage" is similar to a Medieval epic, a blend of metaphysical dreams and esoteric battles with constant spiritual references. This new production is directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov, conducted by Daniel Barenboim and sung by an international cast of excellent singers: Andreas Schager, Anja Kampe, Wolfgang Koch, René Pape, Tomas Tómasson and Matthias Hölle.
