Quests for the Holy Grail, heartthrob opera stars and a behind-the-scenes look at the Met’s spectacular productions? Count us in. In this opera talk, the theater’s general manager, Peter Gelb, engages director François Girard (who has also staged productions for Cirque du Soleil) and members of the Parsifal cast (fingers crossed that hunky Jonas Kaufmann, who plays the title role, will be among them). They’ll discuss the challenges and rewards of bringing Richard Wagner’s final masterpiece to the prestigious Lincoln Center stage; the show runs from February 15 through March 8.
