Kosky’s Meistersinger conquers Bayreuth again

Klaus Florian Vogt (Walther) and Michael Volle (Hans Sachs) © Bayreuther Festspiele | Enrico Nawrath
Kosky’s production manages to maintain all hallmarks of a 16th-century fairy tale, while juxtaposing them with questions of deep human, political and artistic problems. Regietheater at its best.
