The “exquisite” cast (Die Zeit) is headed by Michael Volle’s “eloquent” Hans Sachs (New York Times). Philippe Jordan’s supple conducting is moulded around Kosky’s staging … and the Bayreuth orchestra and chorus are superb” (The Guardian). Artist commentary by Philippe Jordan, Barrie Kosky and Michael Volle at the beginning of the stream.
