Listen Now on demand: MET Parsifal March 2013

Written By The Wagnerian on Sunday, 3 March 2013 | 4:53:00 pm



Update. Alas, we forgot that not all international readers can receive BBC Radio 3's on demand service. If that is you, this performance is presently available in good quality audio sources on demand by a number of radio stations for a short time. Might we recommend Latvian Classical Radio 3? Given the links with Wagner, and this being 2013, we thought it most appropriate. You can also chose to listen using either Real Media Player or WMP via this source. Simply click either link below to use your preferred media-player or visit their archive section to play directly from their site - alas, written in Latvian only

Should you have missed yesterdays live relay of the MET's new production of Parsifal you can catch it for the next 6 days on BBC Radio . Click the link below to listen.
