Meistersinger, Royal Opera House, Graham Vick Revival 2011

So, there you are, it's raining, you haven't brought a brolly, there's no shelter and you have been waiting for what seems like ages on your bus when it eventually pulls up - followed by two more directly behind it. It feels a little like that at the moment with Meistersinger in the UK. First, WNO, then Glyndebourne and now we find the ROH is producing (or at least reviving) another - in little more that twelve months of each other. And we are still two years away from Wagner's bicentennial. Typical!


Another revival of Graham Vick's award wining - and highly regarded - production first seen in 1993
