Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg was first performed at the Königliches Hof- und Nationaltheater in Munich on June 21, 1868, to a libretto by the composer.
"The only comedy among Wagner’s mature works, Die Meistersinger is a rich, perceptive music drama widely admired for its warm humanity... Its genial aspect is immensely enhanced by the technical mastery displayed by Wagner at the height of his powers." Barry Millington in Grove Music Online. Item #27232
