Die Meistersinger Von Nurnberg (The Mastersinger of Nuremberg), by Richard Wagner, combines profound emotion and great comedy to tell the tale of a young knight and his struggle to become a Mastersinger. Wagner’s only comedy, for which he wrote both the words and the music, offers an extraordinarily adept coupling of libretto and musical score.
