General Information


Co-production with Lyric Opera of Chicago and Glyndebourne Festival Opera.

In his comic masterpiece, Wagner set aside gods and goddesses to tell a touchingly human story about the power of art. When an impetuous young singer arrives in a proud German city determined to dazzle the townsfolk and win the love of a beautiful woman, his attempts to prove himself find sympathy in a wise cobbler-poet.
Acclaimed Wagnerian Mark Elder conducts a stellar cast headed by noted British baritone James Rutherford as Hans Sachs. San Francisco Opera favorite Brandon Jovanovich returns in a richly detailed and joyful production by David McVicar.
Greer Grimsley, previously announced to sing the role of Hans Sachs, has withdrawn from the production due ongoing health issues.

More information is available on the opera house's official website.
