Glyndebourne Die Meistersinger released on DVD & Bluray

Details from Opus Arte below (Alas, their website seems to be down for maintenance at the moment)

David McVicar's production -- the first at Glyndebourne -- which is updated to the early-19th century of Wagner's childhood. At the centre of a true ensemble cast is Gerald Finley, a 'gleamingly sung', 'eminently believable' Sachs (The Independent on Sunday), supported by the dynamic conducting of Vladimir Jurowski which, like McVicar's production, uses Glyndebourne's special intimacy to bring sharp focus to bear on the subtlety of Wagner's musical and dramatic counterpoint.
