Staff Pick – Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg : DVD

die-meistersingerThe DVD of David McVicar’s Glyndebourne production of Wagner’s evergreen favourite. With the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Glyndebourne Chorus.

The town goldsmith announces that the winner of the Midsummer’s Day song contest will win his daughter, but must also be, or become, a Mastersinger. The cobbler helps Walther compose a mastersong with which to defeat his rival and win Eva.

Glyndebourne’s special intimacy brings sharp focus on the subtlety of Wagner’s music and dramatic counter-point. Plus, this opera has its own Fight Director!
