Salzburg and/or Paris: Herheim's Meistersinger, 2013

According to an impeccable source (click here), there will be a Salzburg-Paris co-production of Die Meistersinger during Wagner's bicentenary year. (I really should not be publicising this, since I do not want to deny myself the chance of a ticket!) The director will be none other than Stefan Herheim, whose Parsifal, Lohengrin, and Entführung aus dem Serail remain three of the greatest opera stagings I have had the privilege to see. Parsifal, we recently learned, will at last be recorded for DVD release, next year.
