From the Salzburg Festival: "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" (The Mastersingers of Nuremberg) by Richard Wagner (1813-1883). Conductor: Daniele Gatti - Stage director: Stefan Herheim. With Michael Volle (Hans Sachs), Roberto Saccà (Walther von Stolzing), Georg Zeppenfeld (Veit Pogner), Markus Werba (Sixtus Beckmesser), Anna Gabler (Eva), Peter Sonn (David). A "fresh, charming and perceptive production, magical and irresistible!" (The New York Times). In Wagner, wherever politics is absent, there is art. Its rules are the rules of life; to succeed in the practice of art is to enjoy social success. Wagner wrote in 1880 that he hoped for an "aesthetic world order", something that is already anticipated in the Nuremberg of "Die Meistersinger".
