Synopsis

Act I
Afternoon mass at Saint Catherine’s church. The knight Walther falls in love at first sight with Eva, the daughter of goldsmith Pogner. Walther finds out that the winner of the Mestersinger contest on the following day, will win Eva’s hand in marriage. He learns the rules of song composing from David, the cobbler apprentice. During the preliminary trial, the town clerk Bechmesser, who want to marry Eva, gives Walther a failing mark, but the cobbler Sachs praises Walther’s free spirit and talent.
Act Ⅱ
That evening in front of Sachs’ house. Bechmesser appears and serenades Eva. David mistakenly thinks it is his sweetheart who is being serenaded and punches Bechmesser, causing a riot that involves the whole town.
Act Ⅲ
Following morning at Sachs’ house. Walther and Sachs composes a song for the contest. Beckmesser appears and finds the draft of Walther’s song. Sachs gives the draft to Beckmesser. Beside the Pegnitz River, the site of the singing contest, Beckmesser sings a song based on the draft he found, but he gets laughed at. He accuses Sachs of tricking him, but Sachs announces that the song is Walther’s. When Walther sings his song, everybody is moved. Walther wins Eva’s hand in marriage, but declines the title of Meistersinger. Sachs persuades him to accept the title. The opera ends with a chorus lauding the arts of Germany.
