David McVicar's production of Wagner’s Die Meistersinger features Gerald Finley, supported by the dynamic conducting of Vladimir Jurowski, using Glyndebourne's special intimacy to focus on the subtlety of Wagner's musical and dramatic counterpoint.

“McVicar's staging stokes the glow of Meistersinger's humane heart...and above all he reminds us that this is an opera about youth and self-discovery. Gerald Finley's pivotal Sachs relish[es] this intensely verbal role with a Lieder-singer's skill and beauty...Jurowski completes the ensemble with a beautiful account, unfolding the story with pace and details...Together they make the immense performance the most uplifting performance I can recall.” - BBC Music Magazine
