Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (recorded live in 2011) – Tuesday 12 July

Wagner puts singing and songwriting centre stage in Glyndebourne’s biggest ever production.

Hans Sachs, sung by Gerald Finley, 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?

Sung in German with English subtitles.
