Parsifal Productions: 2013

Written By The Wagnerian on Sunday, 13 January 2013 | 3:46:00 am

Only productions that have at least announced their principle casts have been included. As always, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any listing and recommend that you check with the box office before booking. We will attempt to add video and photos as time allows.  If you believe we have missed a production - and we have no doubt that that is the case -  please get in touch and let us know: where, when and who.
