Kundry is a a monodrama composed by Avner Dorman, Yael Ronen’s libretto and directed by Lotte de Beer.
Kundry is a problematic character. As the only female role in Wagner’s epic piece Parsifal, she represents the male gaze upon women. Her, constantly described as wild, unhinged and hysterical, uses the role of whore and mother to work for the evil side.
A concept that seeks the liberation of a character within the western patriarchy, getting her to speak from her own point of view. A new opera with space for humor and reflection.
