Glyndebourne: Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg

Grippingly original, Wagner puts singing and songwriting centre stage in Glyndebourne’s biggest production ever

Hans Sachs is the most celebrated of the Mastersingers, a group of poets and musicians who have created complex rules for composing and performing their songs. Their world is turned upside down by free-thinking Walther who enters their singing competition to win his beloved Eva. But can this inspired rule-breaker win the hand of the woman he loves?

With the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus.

‘A masterstroke’ - The Independent
