This was a spectacular opera performance and I am grateful to the Met and Fredericksburg Regal 14 for making it available to the local public. The singing acting and production were terrific.

Parsifal in HD

This is a great performance - probably one of the best ever! The singers are exceptional, the costuming and staging are dramatci and the music sublime (you can tell I am a Wagnerian). The perfroamnce is very long (6 hours with intermissions) and drags at times, but the HD cameras help create movement even in long static scenes - something you would not get at the Met. There are lots of nuances in the character development and a monumental plot centered around the Garil and Spear. Very staisfying for those who can stay engaged for such a long performance.

This was the first time i'd ever seen Parsifal. Although I know the music well from two complete recordings over the past fifteen years, I'd never been in the right place at the right time to attend a performance. And I'm glad that I hadn't for it is hard to imagine a more beautiful production of Parsifal than this. i was mesmerized throughout the performance. I am also pleased to have seen it as a film because the camera man did such a splendid job with his cameras that i came away convinced that those who were at the Met. that afternoon had not been as advantaged as were those who had seen it in cinemas.

Perhaps the best Met HD presentation of a stellar season. Fantastic cast, compelling production, some of composer Wagner's most beautiful music, and a great host in Eric Owens, all add up to the perfect storm in a positive sense. This six hour marathon seemed all too brief as what unfolded to be one of the finest operas in memory.

Quintisential Wagner, but did not care for the costuming, however I understand the econmics
