A screening of Katharina Wagner's controversial production for the Bayreuth Festival, conducted by Sebastian Weigle and starring Franz Hawlata (Hans Sachs), Klaus Florian Vogt (Walther), Michaela Kaune (Eva) and Michael Volle (Beckmesser).
This breathtaking production grapples courageously with the dubious legacy of Richard Wagner's 'Die Meistersinger', forcing us to rethink our ideas about the work.
(Running time 4hr 30mins.)
