This study attempts to elucidate the musical, poetical and scenic dramaturgy of a central structural feature of 'Parsifal' by tracing the trajectory of the subject of the fool from its annunciation in Act I ('Durch Mitleid wissend, der reine Tor, harre sein, den ich erkor') to the moment of redemption in Act III ('Erlösung dem Erlöser'). In Act I, the matter is presented as an enigma. In Act II, through the explication of the name ('Parsifal - Falparsi'), the prophecy is associated with a particular person - the 'pure fool'. In Act III, after the restitution of the holy spear, the miracle of redemption appears to have been generated musically as a result of a long series of presentations of the 'Torenspruch'.
