Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (The Mastersingers of Nuremberg) Recorded live at Glyndebourne Festival 2011
Grippingly original, Wagner puts singing and song writing 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.
