New production of 'Parsifal' at the Wiener Staatsoper

26 March 2017 — René Pape sings Gurnemanz in a new staging of Wagner's Parsifal, opening this month at the Wiener Staatsoper. He assumes the role on March 30 & April 2, in a spectacular international cast that also includes Christopher Ventris in the title role, Nina Stemme is Kundry, and Gerald Finley sings Amfortas. Maestro Semyon Bychkov leads the orchestra for these performances, with direction and stage design by Alvis Hermanis. Please note extremely limited numbers of tickets remain for both performances of this not-to-be-missed engagement.

He can be heard in the role on this critically lauded recording on the Mariinsky label; details and purchase information is available at the following link.
