sorry guys, thats not what you think. thats a scene from the parsifal opera...
Arier is correct -- The photo is from Act III, Scene 2.
The grail scene in Act III in Parsifal (1882) may symbolically reference droning, I couldn't tell from the libretto. (I did not read the whole thing.) I did gather that a secret group of grail knights, led by their king Amfortas (the wounded man in front of the grail shrine in the photo above) would meet in an underground grail hall. Also, Hitler was a huge fan of this opera.
Below is a creepy photo of a modern production in which Amfortas's father, Titurel, emerges from underground wearing a scaly costume.
Celine O'Carroll....Parsifal was written by Wagner....Here's an interesting quote..."Concerning Wagner’s knowledge of occultism, we know he was acquainted with Freemasons, with whom he entered into fierce debate, and with the Rosicrucians.".....taken from this link...
