Here is a link to the review of Die Meistersinger that appeared in the recent issue of Opera News with a nice photo of Hans Sach being surprised by Eva's embrace:

...with his finely articulated delivery of the text, [Bryn] applied the vast resources of his voice to coloring the tone with huge imaginative variety and a consistency of success only infinitesimally marred when the surface of his voice lost a hint of patina during the final scene; but by that point he had been singing magnificently for nigh on four hours.....

I would say that's an example of the Opera News reviewer never being able to give a huge 'thumbs up' without at least a tiny qualification, (I was there the same night and didn't notice any loss of patina, whatever that might be)--- but he did say the opera was a Major Success!!

Thanks so much, Eavianne, for posting that Opera News article. I got my copy of Opera News this past week and enjoyed reading it and seeing the picture. Love it!

Interesting about the patina.... I was wondering what you all who saw Die Meistersinger in Cardiff would think about that comment. LOL!
