In Palermo, where Richard Wagner composed this monumental opera during a long stay, conductor Omer Meir Wellber makes a highly successful debut as music director of Teatro Massimo, architecturally and artistically one of Italy’s most impressive opera houses. 

“With the Teatro Massimo’s excellent orchestra, he succeeded in a reading that was absolutely straight forward” (Opera Today). The singers are excellently cast, especially Julian Hubbard as Parsifal, “who was a sensation” (neue musikzeitung). Stage director Graham Vick “strips Parsifal of mysticism to deliver a powerful indictment of divisive ideologies” (Musical America).

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.”
