Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in German and English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die Meistersinger von Nürnburg is the only comedy Wagner ever wrote. It is a parable of art told in terms of a simple human love story. Within the context of middle-class town life the opera symbolises the eternal conflict between the need for change, with Walther at its forefront, and the conservative forces of a too strongly held critical tradition, personified in Beckmesser. Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg has also been interpreted as Wagner's protest against his critics and the public
