Very, very brief comments about the Marathon that is
Parsifal.

Mattei and Pape were everything that one might want in
the roles of Amfortas and Gurnemanz. The opera ultimately
rests on their shoulders, and they delivered in every way

I didn't mind Vogt's voice as much as others have, and I
thought his vocalism just fine, especially in Act 2.

Nikitin was fine, and Herlitzius was very variable (more
variable than reliable).

Nezet-Seguin and the chorus were magnificent, especially
in Act 1, my favorite among the three.

If it was not Golden Age, it still would have been admired in
any age. I enjoyed the afternoon enormously!

Bob
