Glyndebourne’s Meistersinger – the cast, at last (and it’s luxury)

Glyndebourne opens May 21 with its first-ever realisation of the founder’s dream – a full Meistersinger with a crack team. Move over, Bryn Terfel. My money’s on the Canadian Sachs.

Nooo, I’m not Welsh;) and I don’t belong to any of his fan communities… I just flew in from Vienna after having read those raves of reviews he plus the entire production had caused with the opening night at WMC. The show I had the pleasure to attend even topped all read hymns by international reviewers written so far. Mr. Lebrecht did you moved over for one show?? If so, your money would be on Terfel’s Sachs! ;-) … Yet best of luck for Glyndebourne’s new production respectively for Mr Finley and his Sachs!”
