    At the Assembly Hall in Champaign, a horrible venue for music but less than a mile from home, what the hell.  I find "Grail lore" fascinating and love Wagner's music but would really have a hard time sitting through a 4.5 hour production of damn near anything. Parsival is in my i tunes file and I did actually listen to it this week while at work.

      .....Krannert Center at UIUC, but that's it, Foellinger Great Hall.  Nice space for a mid-size orchestra, but I imagine a full symphony might be a bit much.  I know that they do get touring orchestras, and the Chicago Symphony stops by once in a while.

      With Parsifal, at least there are 2 intermissions to give you a chance to decompress.  After Act I, it was just over 30 minutes, which is OK given the length of Act I.
