ST. PAUL, Minn. — Tune in to Classical MPR on March 2 at 11 a.m. to hear the Met Opera's performance of Richard Wagner's Parsifal. Jonas Kaufmann stars in the title role of the innocent who finds wisdom in François Girard's new vision for Wagner's final masterpiece. His fellow Wagnerian luminaries include Katarina Dalayman as the mysterious Kundry, Peter Mattei as the ailing Amfortas, Evgeny Nikitin as the wicked Klingsor, and René Pape as the noble knight Gurnemanz. Daniele Gatti conducts. Enjoy a slideshow from the production.
