Thanks to Walther von der Vogelweide
Meistersinger made for a tremendous evening. It was most enjoyable viewed as an ensemble piece, with no outstanding singers, but many competent performances. As a spectacle, it worked very well indeed, and Mark Wigglesworth conjured a good performance from the orchestra.
There were a couple of excellent articles in the programme, both derived from the Cambridge Opera Handbook.
Only the end of the third act leaves a strange taste in my mouth.
