Lyric Opera of Chicago

Richard Wagner:  Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg.  This glorious masterwork stands with The Ring as the ultimate test of singers, chorus, and orchestra.  At its heart is a song contest that will transform the society in which it takes place, and the winner gets the ultimate prize – marriage to the peerless Eva.  The legendary James Morris is Sachs, the wisest of the mastersingers, who mentors the young genius Stolzing, sung by Johan Botha.  Amanda Majeski sings the role of Eva, and Sir Andrew Davis conducts.
