An Advanced Look at the new MET Parsifal
And, as you can see, by the end of the act, the Flowermaidens get a blood soaking worthy of a Sam Peckinpah final reel. From the publicity that I have seen, aside from the pool of sanguine fluid, this take on Richard Wagner's last opera also promises a shirtless Parsifal. Since Jonas Kaufmann is scheduled to sing the title role here in New York, I am sure that that will get a large crowd to the house. I really wonder how the New York audience will react to this latest Peter Gelb offering.
