Listen to a Sample:
- Excellent performance all around by the forces of the Teatro Colón. The superb adult and children's chorus deserve a shout-out for their precision.
- As Parsifal, Wolfgang Windgassen embodies all of the character's youth and subsequant enlightenment. Régine Crespin is a wild, earthy Kundry
- Franz Crass's elegant bass is perfect as Gurnemanz and Theo Adam makes much of Amfortas' suffering.
- Cuts are made in the performance that might be jarring to the diehard Wagnerian.
- Régine Crespin struggles at the end of Act II.
