From the San Francisco Opera website

In his comic masterpiece, Wagner set aside gods and goddesses to tell a touchingly human story about the power of art. When an impetuous young singer arrives in a proud German city determined to dazzle the townsfolk and win the love of a beautiful woman, his attempts to prove himself find sympathy in a wise cobbler-poet.

Acclaimed Wagnerian Mark Elder conducts a stellar cast headed by noted British baritone James Rutherford as Hans Sachs. San Francisco Opera favorite Brandon Jovanovich returns in a richly detailed and joyful production by David McVicar.
