Been meaning to get around to this for some time. Sorry about the delay. Following EuroArts description below are three reviews from: Superconductor (especially useful to new comers to Parsifal and this production), Mostly Opera and Classical CD Reviews

This dramatic production by the brilliant German stage director Harry Kupfer marked Daniel Barenboim’s appointment as the artistic director of the Berlin State Opera in 1992. The cast is made up of the finest Wagnerian singers of the period, all of whom enjoyed substantial international careers. Barenboim’s superb conducting reveals Wagner’s multi-layered score in all its glory.
