New concert staging, sung in German with English titles

Parsifal is a story of suffering, compassion, and, ultimately, redemption, centred on the community of knights who guard the Holy Grail. Wagner said it was his ‘farewell to the world’, and so it proved: the overwhelming power and beauty of his music reaches new heights of expressive intensity in this, his final opera.

Opera North’s first Parsifal is conducted by the Company’s former Music Director Richard Farnes, whose performances of the Opera North Ring cycle in 2016 met with universal acclaim. PJ Harris (Salome) directs this new dramatic concert staging. A strong cast is headed by Toby Spence, returning to Opera North following Fidelio (2020/21).
