The Bayreuth Festival is one of the most renowned and acclaimed opera festivals in the world, dedicated solely to the works of Richard Wagner. Every year, around 60,000 visitors from across the world are drawn to Bayreuth to experience one of its outstanding performances.
Demand for tickets always outstrips supply, and the waiting list for tickets reputedly takes ten years to surmount. But this year, Warwick Arts Centre is providing you with a unique opportunity to jump the queue and witness a Bayreuth production without leaving the Coventry area. For the first time ever, there will be a live screening of Parsifal, beamed direct from the Bayreuth Festival to the cinema screen here at Warwick.
An opera in three acts, it tells the story of the Arthurian Knight Parsifal (Percival) and his search for the Holy Grail. The role of Parsifal will be performed by Burkhard Fritz, with Kundry performed by Susan Maclean.
Do not miss this unique opportunity to see a performance from one of the most in demand festivals in the world, and the spiritual home of Wagner.
