The 1905 performance of "Parsifal" was such a significant event that The Times published the names of what appears to be everyone who attended. The performance by Conreid’s Metropolitan Grand Opera had most of the Met’s opening night cast, including conductor Alfred Hertz and Alois Burgstaller (Parsifal).
