Description
Traditionally, Wagnerian scholarship has treated the four-opera Ring cycle and Parsifal as two separate works. Here Paul Schofield argues that Parsifal is in fact actually the fifth opera of the Ring. Schofield explains in detail how these five musical dramas portray a single, unbroken story which begins at the start of Das Rheingold when Wotan breaks a branch from the World Ash-tree and Alberich steals the gold of the Rhine, thus separating Spear and Grail, and ends with the reunion of the Spear and Grail in the temple of Monsalvat at the end of Parsifal. Schofield explains how and why the four main characters of the Ring are reborn in Parsifal, needing to complete the spiritual journey begun in the Ring—a redemption not attained until then.
