A production of UNITEL, Munich

* Staged and directed by Richard Wagner’s grandson Wolfgang at the Bayreuther Festspiele in 1984, this production of Wagner’s only comic opera features an all-star cast and the Bayreuther Festspiele chorus and
Read more orchestra under the direction of Horst Stein.
* This authentic production dispenses with the common clichés to reveal the humanity of each character – here, Beckmesser (Hermann Prey) is no longer a foolish caricature but a cultivated intellectual; Stolzing (Siegfried Jerusalem) emerges as a thoughtful individual rather than aggressive aristocrat; and Hans Sachs (Bernd Weikl) sheds his solemn patriarchal veneer to become a likeable middle-aged man.

R E V I E W S

“Hermann Prey´s interpretation of Beckmesser as a cultivated intellectual is a triumph of dramatic and vocal artistry: a stunning performance . . . Brilliant . . . Bernd Weikl as Sachs – an almost unique combination of musical refinement and expressive power.” -- Abendzeitung, Munich
