Abstract:

Die Meistersinger von Nürnburg is the only comedy Wagner ever wrote. It is a parable of art told in terms of a simple human love story. Within the context of middle-class town life the opera symbolises the eternal conflict between the need for change, with Walther at its forefront, and the conservative forces of a too strongly held critical tradition, personified in Beckmesser. Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg has also been interpreted as Wagner's protest against his critics and the public.
