A ROH Insight event exploring Kasper Holten's forthcoming new production of Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg was be livestreamed for free via the Royal Opera House YouTube channel and this page from 7.40pm GMT on 15 February 2017, and you can watch on demand here.
This production of Die Meistersinger sees Kasper Holten's make his farewell as The Royal Opera’s Director of Opera. In it, he explores parallels between the hierarchical, tradition-bound ways of the Meistersingers and the historical ritual and pageantry still evident in today’s London – thus teasing out Wagner’s wider considerations on the relationship between audiences, critics and artists.
