Thomas Ryan in Boston - the 1870's

from Recollections of an old musician, page 85:

One of the most notable accomplishments of Mr. Lang was the bringing out of the Passion-Play of Parsifal by Richard Wagner. At great expense he brought from New York the entire Seidl Orchestra, which had recently played the work in that city. It was a bold and brilliant stroke. No other performance of the great composition has been vouchsafed Boston.
