Parsifal, 1986, Programme Cover

Parsifal is an opera in three acts by German composer Richard Wagner. It is loosely based on Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach, a 13th-century epic poem of the Arthurian knight Parzival and his quest for the Holy Grail. Wagner conceived the work in April 1857, but did not finish it until 25 years later. This print is taken from the programme cover from ENO's 1986 performances.
