Synopsis by Mark Deming

One of Richard Wagner's typically epic-scale operas, this tale of a naïve man who makes his way into the world and joins the search for the Holy Grail is given an impressive production in this home-video release. Parsifal documents the Metropolitan Opera's 1992 staging of the opera, featuring Siegfried Jerusalem in the title role and Waltraud Meier, Kurt Moll, and Bernd Weikl highlighting the supporting cast. James Levine directs the orchestra.
