To London to stay in Shaftesbury Avenue. Who wouldn’t love the rushing and the roar? Most fortunate in that ENO Meistersinger was one of their greatest every productions. How I love this piece. All those stuffy old burghers, the noble Sachs, the glorious music splitting its sides with laughter and so exquisitely tender. Sach’s great meditation on how the most rational people can be overtaken by the madness of a crowd, in Nuremberg of all places.
