Major tenor saves streamed Parsifal

We were hesitating over whether to recommend today’s free-stream of Parsifal from Geneva, but news has landed of a drop out by the intended singer for the title-role and his replacement by the outstanding Wagnerian tenor of the moment, Klaus Florian Vogt.

Tanja Ariane Baumgartner sings Kundry.

The concert performance by Jonathan Nott and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande will take place on the stage of the Geneva Opera after the intended production by Michael Thalheimer was canceled due to pandemic rules.

UPDATE: It was announced this morning that the show has been cancelled for Covid reasons. Sorry about that.

Try Parsifal from Stuttgart instead at 5pm

    Or try Flying Dutchman on operavision tonight. Do not know any of the singers, but the pictures look spooky enough :).

      Why the downvote? Looks like an interesting (appropriately spooky) production to me. Apparently filmed in a wharf. Lots of interesting productions on operavision anyhow.

    That photo is from the Oktoberfest-style “Lohengrin” in Vienna.
