The Redeemer Reborn. Parsifal As the Fifth Opera of Wagner's Ring, Schofield, Paul
83 Schofield, Paul The Redeemer Reborn. Parsifal As the Fifth Opera of Wagner's Ring
Amadeus Press 2007 1574671618 / 9781574671612 First Edition Hardcover New in Fine dust jacket 
324pp. Shows how 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 the opera Parsifal, needing to complete in Parsifal the spiritual journey begun in the Ring. He also shows how the redemption that is not attained in the process of the Ring is finally realized in the events of Parsifal.
