The description and the cover don't match. The cover is for a film version of Parsifal that doesn't include Placido Domingo! It's a genuine film, like Bergman's Magic Flute, not a video of a live performance. Somebody should correct this immediately because it's impossible to know what product is being sold on this page.

The all too few bits of PARSIFAL shown here under Gergiev's baton are excellent and make us hope that a complete performance was taped. However, all too much of the time of this is not devoted to performance but to self-serving viewpoints and opinions that show the lack of understanding on the part of these self-styled 'commentators.' When the video of PARSIFAL with Domingo and Urmana under Gergiev is available, get it. Leave this alone especially if you are a Wagnerite.
