South London gets a taste of fringe Opera
At four-and-a-half hours in length, the original opera is one of composer Richard Wagner's most famous works. In this new adaptation written and directed by Ella Marchment, Meistersingers has been reduced to a streamlined ninety-minute “play with songs” to make the work more accessible and enjoyable for fringe-theatre audiences. Starring: - Alison Latham: Eva - Rachel Maby: Magdalena - Benjamin Castle-Gibb: David - Robin Pieta: Walther - Daniel Anderson: Beckmesser - Shaun Aquillina: Sachs - Richard Richie: Pogner Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
