Meistersinger LIVE - end of Act I

Act I's over. Strongly positive reaction in the theatre. Sounded pretty good at this end. Klaus Florian Vogt's Walther is pretty light (too light?) but it's lyrical and I'm coming around to it. Sebastian Weigle's conducting is an interesting mix of brisk and flexible, expressive tempi. Here's something to read during the 1 hour intermission - another article on the succession drama that contains a description of at least part of Katharina Wagner's production.
