Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( Recording )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in German and Undetermined and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mystical enchantment of Wagner's last opera means it has special place in the hearts of opera lovers. On the surface, it's the story of Parsifal's quest to restore the Holy Grail. But for many listeners it is also a profound inner journey that takes them to a unique place. James Levine's conducting of the work has become legendary, and our all-star cast, with Plácido Domingo in the title role, is on the same exalted plane. Violeta Urmana is the temptress Kundry and Ekkehard Wlaschiha is the evil magician Klingsor
