A new release from the series of Metropolitan Munich.

Parsifal represents the culmination of Wagner's work as a revolutionary composer of opera. In it he created a powerful allegory on the conflict between Christianity and paganism, good and evil, light and dark, physical passion and spiritual abstinence.

This dramatic production by the brilliant German stage director Harry Kupfer marked Daniel Barenboim's appointment as the artistic director of the Berlin State Opera in 1992.

The cast is made up of the finest Wagnerian singers of the period, all of whom enjoyed substantial international careers. Barenboim's superb conducting reveals Wagner's multi-layered score in all its glory.

"a must for those who love this work...[Elming] is remarkable in the title role, his concentration and reactions on a par with Jon Vickers's and the voice in pristine shape...Meier remains the Kundry of our time and this, her third DVD, is her best...[Tomlinson's] is a magnetic portrayal, all too human and understanding, caring about details...[Barenboim] aims for and reaches the work's humanity without sacrificing grandeur...How magnificent this is!"
