Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg returns to the Lyric Opera of Chicago for seven performances in February-March 2013.  Chicago may be very cold in mid-winter, but the tale of Hans Sachs is one which warms the heart.  This production will be new to Chicago and is the acclaimed Glyndebourne Festival production by David McVicker, which is also shared with San Franciso (there’s a BIG hint in this blog post!).  Meistersinger stars Johan Botha as Walther, San Francisco Opera Center Merolini Amanda Majeski as Eva, James Morris as Sachs, David Portillo as David, Boje Skovhus as Beckmesser, Dimitry Ivashenko as Pogner and Andrew Davis will conduct.

Dates are February 8, 12, 16, 20, 23, 27 and March 3 2013.
