"Lohengrin"
Act III - "In Fernem Land"

In the final scene of the opera the mysterious knight stands on the banks of the river Scheldt. He reveals that he is one of the consecrated knights of the Holy Grail, and is from the far off mountain Mansalvat. It is the mission of these knights to fight for justice wherever it may take them, but their name must never be asked. Once this happens they must leave. As he concludes this beautiful aria the knight reveals that his father was Parsifal and his name is Lohengrin. The mystic swan and golden boat in which he first arrived now reappears as he prepares to depart.
