The Wagner Society of SOUTHERN California has invited our own WSNC President Terri Stuart, to introduce two films which will be screened Sunday August 16 at 1:00 (Pacific Time).
The films screened will be:
1904 Edison/Porter “Parsifal” featuring Adelaide Fitz-Allen (pictured above). It is not a complete Parsifal, however it is a fascinating artifact of the silent film era.
2004 “Parsifal, Indiana Jones and Richard Wagner” by Werner Boote. In this film Director Boote goes on his own grail quest to discover the origins of the Grail legends and to trace the Grail to the current resting place in Valencia, Spain. The film uses rehearsal footage from the Vienna Staatsoper’s Parsifal production by Christine Mielitz featuring: Angela Denoke, the late Johan Botha, Thomas Quasthoff, conducted by Donald Runnicles.
This offered free of charge to all Wagner Society Members
