This review is from: Wagner: Parsifal (Gatti) [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
I had the enormous privilege of being in the audience the afternoon this perfomance went out live. Such was the power of the production that even after 4 1/2 hours you just did not want it to end. You have but to watch the curtain calls to realize that this was something extraordinarily special. A cast, all of whom were on the top of their form, left you breathless. The Met's orchestra and chorus have to be among the best in the world. Wagner, one would hope, would have considered this the ultimate interpretation of his work.
