Pne of the world's greatest operas is coming to Fernie.

One of the world’s greatest operas is being screened in Fernie.

Wagner’s Parsifal will get opera fans’ hearts racing – and for those who don’t speak German, subtitles will keep you following the story!

Rich romantic melodies as themes for characters intertwine into glorious sounds. While Wagner did not know brevity, his music is divine. And, friends of opera Fernie, have come up with an easy way to enjoy the show.

Not only have they chosen Wagner’s last, and greatest, opera, but it’s also one of the shortest at just 3.5 hours.

To make the evening fun and interesting, nibbles and refreshments – on the house – will be served at 5 p.m. with a short, inspiring, talk about the allegory of the timeless Parsifal myth, together with introductions to the theme melodies for the characters.

There will also be a break for a pot-luck, sit-down dinner (food warmers available) at 7 p.m. Then the following two acts will be screened, ending at approximately 10 p.m.

If you enjoy melodious music, this is a wonderful introduction to the world of opera.

Join the following on Saturday, March 10 at 5 p.m. at the Arts Station. The show starts at 5:30 p.m.
