Der Dokumentarfilm von Vadim Jendreyko (Die Frau mit den 5 Elefanten) nimmt die Stuttgarter Parsifal-Inszenierung des Star-Regisseurs Calixto Bieito zum Anlass und als roten Faden, um in das komplexe Universum eines grossen Opernhauses einzutauchen ... .

The Singing City : Mounting Parsifal at the Stuttgart Opera( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmed with rare behind-the-scenes access at Germany's renowned Stuttgart State Opera, this program uses director Calixto Bieito's staging of Wagner's Parsifal to explore the dazzling and complex universe of a major operatic production. The challenges of directing, conducting, rehearsing, and dialect coaching (baritone Gregg Baker, as Amfortas, speaks no German) are all shown in fascinating detail. Viewers also learn about the working lives of craftspeople and stage technicians as they conceive, build, and install a dark cityscape of visually stunning elements-including sets, props, costumes, and the ever-present stage blood that threatens to leak into the orchestra pit. Revealing just how difficult it is to coax a visionary interpretation like Bieito's into concrete and living form, award-winning documentary filmmaker Vadim Jendreyko has crafted his own remarkable story along the way. Contains occasional profanity and nudity associated with theatrical performance. (Portions with English subtitles, 52 minutes) A streaming videorecording
