Richard Wagner

Parsifal


Festival play in three acts, in German with Hungarian and English surtitles
Title Character slays swan, whereupon the knights guarding the Holy Grail begin to suspect he may be the Grail King, before realising he’s nothing of the sort. A wicked sorcerer who even has a magic garden at his disposal wants to put Title Character under his power with the help of a lady condemned to eternal atonement for her sins, but he then disintegrates a castle just like that. He returns to the knights, heals the king before becoming king himself anyway and redeeming the lady, who promptly dies.
