The Directors Company, by special arrangement with Ted Snowdon, presents the world premiere of Allan Leichts My Parsifal Conductor, directed by Robert Kalfin.

Musical genius Richard Wagner and his ever-faithful wife Cosima, find themselves in a moral, political and musical dilemma when King Ludwig II of Bavaria insists that Hermann Levi, the son of a rabbi, conduct Wagner’s final masterpiece, Parsifal. Cosima spends her last night on earth reliving her past and contemplating her after-life. In this surprisingly comedic and imaginative take on the real life events, Hermann Levi causes Cosima & Wagner to try to control their anti-Semitic views. 

My Parsifal Conductor will feature Eddie Korbich as Wagner, Claire Brownell as Cosima, Geoffrey Cantor as Levi, Carlo Bosticco as Ludwig, Logan James Hall as Nietzsche, Alison Cimmet as Dora and Jazmin Gorsline as Carrie/Sophie. 

My Parsifal Conductor will feature set design by Harry Feiner, costume design by Gail Cooper-Hect, lighting design by Paul Hudson, sound design by Andy Evan Cohen and projection design by Tim Donovan/Bravo Media.
