Jonas Kaufmann makes his Met role debut as the title character in Parsifal, conducted by Daniele Gatti and directed by noted film and opera director FranÃƒÂ§ois Girard in his Met debut. "Parsifal is not just an opera--it's a mission. At the end of his life, Wagner was trying to reconcile all the aspects of his spirituality. It's a sacred piece in the history of music," Girard says. The cast also features Katarina Dalayman as Kundry, the mystical woman who tempts Parsifal; Peter Mattei in his role debut as Amfortas, king of the Knights of the Holy Grail; RenÃƒÂ© Pape in one of his greatest roles, the wise old knight Gurnemanz; and Evgeny Nikitin as the magician Klingsor. Approximate running time: 320 minutes.. Tickets are $25 ($22 members; $18 students) and may be ordered online or by calling 413 458 0MET (458 0638).
