A new illustration by A/A artist Andree Volkmann accompanies Auditorium magazine’s exclusive interview with opera director Stefan Herheim. Known for his acclaimed productions of the Wagner operas Parsifal at Bayreuth and Lohengrin at the Berlin Staatsoper, Herheim discusses his new production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg,
this season's most talked-about premiere at the Salzburg Festival.
For his illustration, Andree transports Die Meistersinger to the set of the German reality television singing competition Deutschland sucht den Superstar. The opera’s dueling singers, Sixtus Beckmesser and Walther von Stolzing, compete for the favor of a judging panel made up of Herheim, Wagner, and a main character in the opera, Hans Sachs.
As usual, Andree’s work conveys personality and humor in equal measure——a perfect complement to Auditorium’s interview. To work with Andree or any of our other artists, please contact us:
