Be part of something extraordinary and help us bring the magic of Parsifal to life by joining the Parsifal Circle.

In June 2022, Opera North will be bringing the magic of Wagner’s Parsifal to audiences across the UK. Building on the tremendous success of the Ring Cycle, presented by Opera North to universal critical acclaim in 2016, Richard Farnes will return to lead an outstanding cast and conduct Parsifal in what will be a landmark production of this generation. 

Touring nationally to a selection of the UK’s greatest concert halls, the magic of Parsifal will be brought to audiences with eight performances in five cities, providing an unparalleled opportunity to experience the immersive power of Wagner’s final opera first-hand. 

As a member of the Parsifal Circle, you will gain unrivalled insight into this creative journey, bearing witness to the craft of assembling Wagner’s masterpiece step by step. You will have access to a series of exclusive events designed to bring you as close as possible to the production, as well complimentary tickets, VIP hospitality at performances, and opportunities to meet artists and the creative team.
