‘Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg’ at Royal Opera House
This season, Rachel Willis-Sørensen sings Eva in a new production of Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg at London’s Royal Opera House, directed by Kasper Holten. The performances take place March 11 – 31, and feature a singular cast, including Bryn Terfel as Hans Sachs and Gwyn Hughes Jones as Walter, with Sir Antonio Pappano leading from the pit. Tickets and additional information are available via ROH.org.uk.
“Rachel Willis-Sørensen simply sparkled in her San Francisco Opera debut as Eva. Her charisma made her an assured ingénue and her radiant soprano soared throughout the auditorium. Her voice was the embodiment of “Selig wie die Sonne” (Blessed as the sun), the opening line of the Act III Quintet.” (San Francisco Opera – Bachtrack review)
