Recorded at the Glyndebourne Festival, Wagner’s opera Die Meistersinger von Nurnburg (The Mastersingers of Nuremberg) is being screened at Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough next week.

Grippingly original, Wagner puts singing and songwriting centre stage in what was Glyndebourne’s biggest production ever.

Hans Sachs is the most celebrated of the mastersingers, a group of poets and musicians who have created complex rules for composing and performing their songs.

Their world is turned upside down by free-thinking Walther who enters their singing competition to win his beloved Eva.

But can this inspired rule-breaker win the hand of the woman he loves?

With the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus, the screening is on Tuesday, July 12 at 5.30pm.

Tickets are £15 and £13 on 01427 676655 or http://bit.ly/299XlAk
