From the English National Opera

Presented by Donald Macleod

Mark Wigglesworth conducts ENO's highly acclaimed production of Wagner's last opera.
The knights of the Holy Grail are in disarray. Only a blameless fool, made wise through compassion, can cure Amfortas's wound and so set them on the way to recovery. Unlikely as it seems at first, Parsifal might well be that saviour.

Amfortas ..... Iain Paterson (bass)
Titurel ..... Andrew Greenan (bass)
Gurnemanz ..... John Tomlinson (bass)
Klingsor ..... Tom Fox (bass)
Kundry ..... Jane Dutton (mezzo soprano)

Conductor ..... Mark Wigglesworth.
