*Michael Güttler replaces Robin Ticciati, who has had to withdraw for medical reasons
The world of the Mastersingers, a group of poets and
musicians, is turned upside down when the free-thinking Walther Von Stolzing enters their singing competition to win his beloved Eva. Sachs is forced to weigh up the value of rule-breaking inspiration against that of time-honoured traditions, while grappling with the viability of his own dreams.
