Vienna, Theater an der Wien Wiener Festwochen ParZeFool/ MONDPARSIFAL ALPHA 1-8 UA

After the much-discussed cancellation of his directing engagement at the Bayreuth Festival, the artist Jonathan Meese will bring the conflict with Parsifal to a new dimension. No post-creative act can be expected at the premiere of MOONPARSIFAL ALPHA 1-8 (ARCHMATRIARCH OF ESPIONARCHY), but rather, an encounter of the visual artist Meese with the composer Bernhard Lang. With their new Parsifal project, the two will transport Wagner’s mythos into a revolutionary moment in a far-flung future. (Wiener Festwochen)
