Reply to SD blog post re Jonas Kaufmann and Met Parsifal…

I look forward to hearing Mr Ventris sing Parsifal some day. But for now, I feel that I have waited a long time for this Met production, and it was worth the wait. All the main characters came to life, and the staging was generally sufficiently minimalistic to keep our focus on the music rather than a clutter of costumes and backdrops.

I don’t know what Wagner would have thought of this Met production, but it does seem to me that it touches a wide audience with a universal tone.
