DIE MEISTERSINGER von Nürnberg, a comedy-opera by Richard Wagner is being staged at New York’s Metropolitan Opera and will be broadcast live to The Eye, Wellpark.
The opera, screened this Saturday at 5pm, is rarely produced because of its enormous scale, so this will be the first chance in decades for many to see this work.
Set in medieval Nürnberg, the opera centres on a guild of master singers who run a song contest to help unite the various rival factions of the city. Meistersinger is directed by James Levine and the cast features Johan Reuter, Johan Botha, and Annette Dasch.
