See more information »

This proof copy of the piano-vocal score of Wagner's Die Meistersinger contains markings by the composer himself. The one appearing at the top of page 177 instructs the printer on the placement of the text for the stage direction. Dedicated to King Ludwig of Bavaria, the opera was first performed in Munich on 21 June 1868. In this scene from Act II, Hans Sachs interferes with Beckmesser's attempt to serenade Eva by hammering on a shoe and bellowing a tune.
