Vienna’s new Parsifal casts spotlight on Putin’s prisonermain
The postponed Parsifal at the Vienna State Opera is now scheduled to be aired on April 18.
It is being directed from Moscow by Kirill Serebrennikov who was until recently under house arrest for anti-Putin activism. Serebrennikov is the drama in a prison.
Asked about the jailed Putin opponent Alexei Navalny, Srebrennikov said: ‘Everyone in prison evokes my compassion. Even more so if he is in a prison because of his convictions.’
