About this title


This book presents a lively and informative account of Die Meistersinger von NÜrnberg, including its literary sources and the evolution of the text from a light comic opera into its final form. John Warrack examines the music and historical tradition of the Mastersingers; Lucy Beckett analyzes the Hans Sachs character and reveals how Wagner communicates with his audience, both musically and dramatically; Michael Tanner suggests new ways to interpret Meistersinger as a reflection of Wagner's overall view of opera; while Patrick Carnegy provides a history of key productions. The volume contains a full synopsis, bibliography, and music examples as well as three valuable appendices.

Book Description:

In addition to exploring the opera's literary sources and its evolution from light comedy, this account examines the music and historical tradition of the Mastersingers as well as the Hans Sachs character, and reveals how Wagner communicates with his audience, musically and dramatically.
