In this photo provided by the Metropolitan Opera, Jonas Kaufmann rehearses the title character of Wagner's "Parsifal," Feb. 8, 2013 in New York. Though traditionalists may object, this is a “Parsifal” to treasure, elevated to the highest musical level by the solemnity and sweep of Daniele Gatti's conducting and the dedication of a dream cast of singing actors, headed by tenor Jonas Kaufmann in the title role.
