The Metropolitan Opera Saturday Matinee broadcasts are back on Classical 90.5. This week is Wagner’s epic comedy, back at the Met for the first time in eight years. James Morris and Michael Volle share the central role of Hans Sachs. Johan Botha reprises his indomitable Walther, and the elegant Annette Dasch is Eva.
