In most Arthurian retellings, the character Parsifal (Percival, in most versions), is a minor satellite character. In Parsifal's Page, he is brought to into the spotlight as this book follows the story of his well-meaning, but often misguided and naïve page.4/5. Parsifal The Holy Grail of Opera. Epic Saga. A monumental work, encompassing not just music and theater, but philosophy and religion, Wagner’s Parsifal is considered one of his greatest masterpieces. The quest of the Knights of the Holy Grail transforms into a meditative and existential journey through truth, temptation, and ultimately redemption. Richard Wagner's Parsifal remains an inexhaustible yet highly controversial work. This "stage consecration festival play," as the composer described it, represents the culmination of his efforts to bring medieval myth and modern music together in a dynamic relationship. Wagner's engagement with religion--Buddhist as well as Christian--reaches a climax here, as he seeks through artistic means. Book 9 Parzival encounters Sigune and visits with the hermit Trevrizent. The author begins with an aside to Lady Adventure, asking what has become of Parzival. Parzival has traveled and wandered widely by horse and by sea, lamenting his lack of success in finding Anfortas. About four and one-half years have elapsed since he left his wife.

Parsifal touches the wound with the spear, and Amfortas is healed. Parsifal takes the crystal Grail from its golden shrine, and it glows with increasing brightness. Kundry, having gained forgiveness, falls lifeless to the floor. Parsifal waves the Grail in blessing over the knights, and a dove comes down from above to hover over him. Betsy Schwarm. Jul 15,  · The story of Parsifal is part of the medieval legend of King Arthur and the Quest for the Holy Grail. Parzival is a medieval romance written by the knight-poet Wolfram von Eschenbach in Middle High German. The poem, commonly dated to the first quarter of the 13th century, centers on the Arthurian hero Parzival and his long quest for the Holy Grail following his initial failure to achieve it. Parzival begins with the knightly adventures of Parzival's father, Gahmuret, his marriage to Herzeloyde, and the birth of Parzival. Parsifal removes the Grail's cover and its light washes over them. Kundry is set free from her sin and her body falls to the floor while a dove rises above it, taking its place near Parsifal. He happily accepts his new role as king and leader of the order.
