Simon Rattle conducts “Parsifal”
Richard Wagner’s Parsifal, which once again deals with Wagner’s metaphysical lifelong theme of redemption, is characterised by scintillating, almost narcotic music of unparalleled allure. In 2018, Simon Rattle conducted the work in a performance with a top-class ensemble including Stuart Skelton and Nina Stemme. The audience reacted enthusiastically, and the press also praised this “shimmering, iridescent, and lustrous Parsifal for the 21st century”.
