Meistersinger Live Stream Cancelled

Attention.  The live stream of Die Meistersinger from the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich scheduled for July 31 has been cancelled.  There was planned to be a simultaneous festival in the plaza in front of the opera house, and that was earlier cancelled because of the recent massacre in an area of Munich that is close to the opera.  It will be rescheduled.

I have removed it from my calendar with great regret.

We have been eagerly awaiting this simulcast as well and find ourselves so disappointed.
Here on the west coast of Canada it is truly ironic that the events of the last number of weeks in Munich and other areas of Bavaria have had an effect even here! Rather than tuck in to Wagner on Sunday morning at 8 as planned we will drive far out of Vancouver for the day and have a picnic at Kumsheen, a wonderful area in the Fraser Canyon, far from the sadness of terrorism.
We look forward to this simulcast when it becomes safe to do it and send our best wishes to Munich for a safe and secure future.
