24/7: Take a supper break in the search for Grail.

Byline: JOE RILEY

WELSH National Opera is making a picnic out of its Liverpool season next week.

The Saturday performance of Parsifal,Wagner's epic story of the knights of the Holy Grail, begins at 4.30pmand includes a 50-minute supper break.

But it's not a case of cutting off the crusts at home.

Tickets for a special buffet are available (complete with veggie options).

But,in general terms, the week's programme,can best be described as ``meaty''.

It also includes Mozart's own comedy of errors,The Marraige of Figaro (Tues andThurs) and Verdi's Il Trovatore (Wedand Fri).

Two of Russia's outstanding young singers,Elena Lassoskya and Yuri Nechaev,make their British debuts in Travatore, with tenor David Rendall, returning toWNO in the role of rebel leader Manrico.

Neil Armfield's production of Figaro is revived for the first time this year, withJames Rutherford in the title role,and the cast also including the Lancashire singer Brindley Sherratt.
