In German with Dutch surtitles.

Richard Wagner's Parsifal thrusts us into two contradictory universes: a spiritual community gathered around the mysterious Grail and the opposing world of the banished Klingsor, where everything revolves around physicality. Tatjana Gürbaca sees Wagner's final musical drama as an endgame between two worlds in crisis. Rien ne va plus… Although the Grail community and Klingsor's world are strictly separated as polar opposites, they remain fatefully bound to one another through Kundry, who serves both worlds. In Gürbaca's perceptive reading of Parsifal, she becomes the focal point for the entire story – the woman who sacrifices herself for both communities and in whom all the paradoxes and contradictions of the story converge.

The orchestra will be led by the young German maestro Cornelius Meister. The role of Parsifal will be performed by the American tenor and Wagner specialist Erin Caves. With the German mezzosoprano Tanja Ariane Baumgartner in the role of Kundry, expectations are running high.
