Following on from Saffron Opera Group’s triumphant conclusion of Wagner’s Ring Cycle with Götterdämmerung, the whole work having attracted outstanding notices in a gathering swell of praise, the Group’s first production of Parsifal, as ever, will feature a mixture of established professional singers and exciting stars of tomorrow. The superlative cast will include internationally renowned soprano Elaine McKrill as Kundry and acclaimed baritone Nicholas Folwell as Klingsor. Under the commanding baton of Wagner specialist Michael Thorne, and with a hand-picked orchestra and chorus, Parsifal’s ‘hunt for the holy grail’ promises another truly exceptional operatic event featuring the famous Good Friday music, Klingsor’s flower maidens in the garden of earthly delights and Wagner’s musical confrontation with the themes of re-incarnation and compassionate love. Another epic, exhilarating and unmissable evening.
