Libretto Richard Wagner
First performance Bayreuth, 1882

A prophecy to save them all

Following on from the success of the Ring cycle, for his final operatic breath Wagner turned to the legend of the Holy Grail to create a masterpiece: Parsifal.  

Amfortas, ruler of the Kingdom of the Grail, suffers an incurable wound after losing the Holy Spear to evil sorcerer Klingsor. When a prophecy reveals that only a naïve young man who has learnt compassion will be able to heal Amfortas, Parsifal must embark on a quest to save the community of the Grail.

A rare opportunity to experience the immense universe of Wagner’s crowning work in all its glory, this dramatic concert staging brings to the fore a resplendent 90-piece orchestra and a stellar international cast under the skilful baton of Richard Farnes. From the miraculous 15-minute orchestral Prelude, to the celebrated Good Friday Music Wagner’s final opera will transport you to another world.

Please note, this performance is a concert staging version of the Leeds Grand Theatre production. The Leeds Grand Theatre production includes additional theatrical costume and lighting.
