>Why, then, should we not read Parsifal from today’s perspective: the kingdom of Klingsor in Act II is a domain of digital phantasmagoria, of virtual amusement— Harry Kupfer was right to stage Klingsor’s magic garden as a video parlour, with Flower Girls reduced to fragments of female bodies (faces, legs . . .) appearing on dispersed T V screens. Is Klingsor not a kind of Master of the Matrix, manipulating virtual reality, a combination of Murdoch and Gates? And when we pass from Act II to Act III, do we not effectively pass from fake virtual reality to the ‘desert of the real’ , the ‘wasteland’ in the aftermath of ecological catastrophe which derailed the ‘normal’ functioning of nature. Is Parsifal not a model for Keanu Reeves in The Matrix, with Laurence Fishburne in the role of Gurnemanz?
