Teatro Regio di Torino opened a new production of Wagner's Parsifal by Italian director Federico Tiezzi on January 26 and Tiezzi slapped a big gator head on Christine Goerke's Kundry. Yeah, that looks about right.
Parsifal is Christopher Ventris, Kundry is Christine Goerke, and Bertrand de Billy (making his house debut) conducts the Teatro Regio's orchestra through February 6.
