    magnificient with tensions, and heroic upheavals of the soul, the alternative vawes of elation and Slavic gloom.

    its 4plus hours, but there were 2 extra long intermissions.

    Parsifal takes a different kind of listening.
    Wagner wanted to slow time and create otherworldly atmosphere.

    A great antidote for the hectic world.

    It takes time to adjust to and appreciate.
