Parsifal live in HD
12:33pm Monday 2nd December 2013 in What's on
A NEW production of Parsifal, will be screened live in HD via satellite to Theatr Mwldan on December 18 at 4.45pm.
Wagner’s huge, profound meditation on guilt, death and possible redemption, is always a remarkable event. This one, directed by Stephen Langridge, designed by Alison Chitty and conducted by Antonio Pappano, the creative team who brought Birtwistle’s brutal, beautiful Minotaur to the stage, is especially exciting.
An extraordinary cast of Wagnerian singers come together: Heldentenor Simon O’Neill, recently acclaimed for his Siegmund, sings Parsifal; the magnificent bass René Pape is
Gurnemanz; Gerald Finley makes his role debut as Amfortas after a wonderful Hans Sachs at Glyndebourne, Willard White sings the sorcerer Klingsor, and versatile singer-actress Angela Denoke is an intriguing choice for Kundry.
Tickets for The Royal Opera House screening of Parsifal on December 18, 4.45pm at Theatr Mwldan, Cardigan are £16 (£15 concessions) and can be booked by calling 01239 621200 or online at www.mwldan.co.uk.
