verweile doch...

Here's the Glyndebourne Meistersinger, up until the weekend. Catch it before it all turns into a pumpkin.

Update: It has all turned into a pumpkin. We await the DVD, because this was, even with a couple of weak links, a surprisingly fabulous performance. And Act II was a set-dresser's dream (or nightmare). And I loved the way McVicar dealt with the shortness of space in the final scene by ditching onstage pomp & circumstance for general unrehearsed public event confusion of who's supposed to be sitting in what chair. Note perfect.
