New production of Parsifal at the Royal Theatre La Monnaie in Brussels

A new production of Parsifal will premiere at the Royal Theatre La Monnaie in Brussels 27 January 2011. Hartmut Haenchen, who conducted the infamous Paris production by Krysztof Warlikowski (the one using a clip from Rosselini's film ”Germany Year Zero”), will conduct a cast led by Swedish superstar Anna Larsson making her role debut as Kundry. According to some commentators, Haenchen's Parsifal reading in Paris was the fastest ever.

Stage director is Romeo Castellucci.
