From the Vienna State Opera: "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" (The Mastersingers of Nuremberg) by Richard Wagner, conducted by Christian Thielemann, after a stage production by Otto Schenk. With Johan Botha (Walther von Stolzing), Michael Schade (David), Ricarda Merbeth (Eva), Falk Struckmann (Hans Sachs). Wagner's "Meistersinger" is a festive opera in its own right, but at the reprise of the work at the Vienna State Opera in January 2008, the festive spirit literally leapt out into the audience as well. Vienna's dailies exploded with praise such as "A feast of singers" (Der Standard), "A feast ... grandiose" (Die Presse) and "Nearly six hours of pure enjoyment" (Kurier). The plaudits applied to all the singers, from Hans Sachs to the night watchman, as well as to the chorus and orchestra of the Vienna State Opera.
