Director: Kasper Holten; Composer: Wagner; Conductor: Antonio Pappano
Antonio Pappano will be conducting the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and the Royal Opera Chorus in a production of Richard Wagner's comic opera "Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg".
When Walther falls in love with Eva and discovers that she's going to marry the man who wins the Mastersingers' song competition, he vows to enter the competition and win. But when his song is rejected, he attempts to elope with Eva instead, only to see their efforts confounded by a riot.
The Mastersinger then helps Walther to write another song for the competition, which sweeps away the rest and lands Walther the prize.
