This last opera by Richard Wagner was specially composed adapting to the unique acoustics of Festspielhaus and exhibits composer’s message of universal love and eternal freedom. During the last “Parsifal” performance in August 1882 composer himself took the button and conducted the show from the transformation scene till the end. Soon afterwards he travelled to Venice, where on 13. February, the heart attack has terminated his life.
Three visited performances: “Tristan and Isolde” on July 26th, “Parsifal” on July 27th and “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg” on July 31st, can be united to build an operatic triangle marked by great singing, impressive acting and the unique flair of this historical place. Sort of Bayreuth-Bermuda-Triangle, a universe, one inside you never want and can escape.
