Wagner’s opera Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg brings audiences the colour, characters and vibrant life of medieval Nuremberg.

The entire community of Nuremberg is the setting for Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg’s story of challenges and triumphs – of art and of the heart – with Eva and Walther at the centre, under the encouragement of Hans Sachs.

Wagner’s music ranges from dramatic to reflective, energetic to sublime, with a conclusion that is as musically overwhelming as it is emotionally uplifting.

Graham Vick’s popular production of Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg was last staged by The Royal Opera in 2002.

Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg is sung in German with English surtitles.
