History

Richard Wagner’s Parsifal

First seen in 1882, Wagner’s final masterpiece was written specifically for the space and acoustics of the Bayreuth Festspielhaus, where it was meant to be performed exclusively. The Met presented the first staged production outside Bayreuth in 1903. With a score of magnificent subtlety and beauty and a story that blends the legend of the Holy Grail with Christian imagery, Buddhist ideas, and 19th-century European philosophy, Parsifal is a unique work that transcends the boundaries of the standard repertoire. “Parsifal is not just an opera—it’s a mission,” says François Girard, who directed the Met’s acclaimed 2013 production. “At the end of his life, Wagner was trying to reconcile all the aspects of his spirituality. It’s a sacred piece in the history of music.”
