“A fresh, charming and perceptive production, magical and irresistible!” - New York Times

This new staging of Richard Wagner's "Meistersinger" burst upon the Salzburg Festival like a thunderclap.

Stefan Herheim's idea of staging a Midsummer Night's Dream as a fairytale narrative is enchanting with this admirably matched ensemble of excellent singer-players- all of whom bring sharp contours to their roles- as well as the brilliant details of characterization, make each scene an experience to cherish.

The unbelievably lavish and absolutely splendid stage set radiates youthful charm and conjures up a flood of incomparable images.

Roberto Sacca is a Walther von Stolzing, who shows effortless control in his superb realization of the part and Michael Volle has both the voice and the acting ability to flesh out a fascinatingly multi-layered portrait of the masterful Hans Sachs.

“It is amazing to see how convincingly the chorus of the
Vienna State Opera acts out the crowds and how splendid the
Vienna Philharmonic sounds" - Neue Zürcher Zeitung
