In his comic masterpiece, Wagner set aside gods and goddesses to tell a touchingly human story about the power of art. When an impetuous young singer arrives in a proud German city determined to dazzle the townsfolk and a beautiful woman, his attempts to prove himself find sympathy in a wise cobbler-poet.

Acclaimed Wagnerian Sir Mark Elder conducts a stellar cast headed by two San Francisco Opera favorites—Greer Grimsley as Hans Sachs and Brandon Jovanovich as Walther. Sir David McVicar’s beautifully conceived staging is “remarkable for the detailed naturalism of its performances” (The Guardian, London).
