Opera

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

Richard Wagner

Opera in three acts Libretto by the composer Performed in German with German and English supertitles

Richard Wagner’s musical comedy about »The Master- Singers of Nuremberg« is a great masterpiece about love and desire, of old men and young women, of stormy poets and nit-picking bachelors. And it is a romantic utopia about how the power of singing and art is able to reconcile conflicting social forces in the idealised medieval city of Nuremberg.
