About the Event

Two of the most compelling yet under-appreciated elements of the  Meistersinger libretto are the words to Beckmesser's "Prize Song" in Act  Three, and Eva's "asides" in Act Two, as she and Walther von Stolzing  are trapped in the bushes, hiding from Sachs, Beckmesser, Pogner, and  the Night Watchman. Contemporary translations of the Beckmesser "Prize  Song" generally corrupt the brilliant nuance of Wagner's humor, while  Eva's comments from the bushes reveal her "trouble with men!" Maestro  John Edward Niles will unravel these hidden delights!
