On the occasion of 2016/17 opera premieres, Hotel Bristol – the traditional Viennese hotel vis-à-vis the State Opera – invites opera aficionados to a classical Afternoon Tea including culinary delights and a glass of sparkling wine five times throughout the coming season. In a dialog with Dr. Thomas Dänemark, Secretary General of the Friends of the Vienna State Opera, the stars of the 2016/17 premieres (singers, conductors and directors) will share insights about the relevant production and performance. Get a sneak peek behind the curtain of the Vienna State Opera.

Parsifal by Richard Wagner

Wagner’s last opera is seen by many as a unique stage myth. The opus, which the composer gave an (artificially) religious style, is based on Wolfram von Eschenbach’s verse novel written around 1200. The plot of this sacred festival drama, which first performed in 1882, emphasizes Wagner’s dominant feature, the idea of redemption.
