Summary
Among Wagner's mature operas, this is the only comedy. It is based on a true story of the guild of Meistersingers (Master singers). The town goldsmith announces that the winner of the Midsummer's Day song contest will win his daughter, but must also be or become a Mastersinger. The cobbler Hans Sachs (an actual historical figure) helps Walther compose a Mastersong with which to defeat his rival Beckmesser and win Eva
