About Die Meistersinger Von Nürnberg

Walther falls in love with Eva. When he discovers that she shall marry the man who wins the Mastersingers’ song competition, he determines to be that man. However, his Trial Song to enter the guild is rejected, and Walther leaves full of contempt for the Mastersingers’ backwards ways.

Walther attempts to elope with Eva, but their efforts are confounded by a midsummer riot. Instead, the Mastersinger Hans Sachs helps Walther write a new song for the competition. This new song extends but also respects the formal rules of the Mastersingers, who are swept away by its ardour and award Walther the prize.

Sung in German with English surtitles.
