Can art function as a unifying force in society? This is one of several fascinating topics that Christian Thielemann and Jens-Daniel Herzog discuss in a series of short films (in German), whose online release begins today. They both expound on the relevance that this opera – Richard Wagner’s only comedy – can have as a ‘plea for tolerance’ in today’s times.
Christian Thielemann talks about engaging Georg Zeppenfeld to make his debut in the role of Sachs, and he discusses the challenges posed by singing Eva, in which role the soprano Jacquelyn Wagner will be making her Salzburg debut.
Jens-Daniel Herzog also reveals the context in which his Meistersinger production will take place.
