Wagner: Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg Blu-ray (Bayreuth Festival)

A double premiere: Katharina Wagner's first production on Bayreuth's Green Hill and the first live recording from the Festival on Blu-ray and DVD. In this production, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg is a parable about art and society using images of a kind never previously seen in this work at Bayreuth.
