Date published: Mon 06 Dec 2010
Nickolaus Lehnhoff returns to direct his highly acclaimed production of Wagner’s masterpiece Parsifal for its final revival. First performed in 1999, Lenhoff’s production was hailed as one of the great Wagnerian stagings of the last two decades, and having travelled to San Francisco, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and the Gran Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona, returns to the London Coliseum for its first revival. British conductor Mark Wigglesworth leads an outstanding ensemble cast with Stuart Skelton in the title role, Iain Paterson as the fallen King Amfortas, John Tomlinson as Gurnemanz and Iréne Theorin sings the role of Kundry.
