Met loses Norwegianmain
Peter Gelb has conceded defeat in plans to bring Salzburg’s 2013 Meistersinger to the Met.
But Stefan Herheim’s production won’t fit the Met stage and the fashionable Norwegian director, 46, has broken up with his set designer, creating further snags. (More twists here).
So the Met’s going to have to borrow Harry Kupfer’s Meistersinger from Zurich.
