    Summary

    It's the heyday of the medieval guilds, including that of the Mastersingers. Eva Pogner’s been offered in marriage as the prize in this year’s song contest (nice one, Dad). Nuremberg's Town Clerk Beckmesser, a pedantic twit, covets her. The widower Sachs, both a master cobbler and the guild's acknowledged laureate, loves her, but she's devoted to the young knight who just showed up full of modern poetry, and Master Sachs helps him win.

    Wagner's story doesn’t mention the other parties who intervened.

    When the Lord cast Eve out of Paradise
    Sharp pebbles, for the first time, bruised her feet.
    That grieved the Lord, who called an angel:
    “Go make shoes for the poor sinner,
    And I see Master Adam
    has stubbed his toe on the stones:
    So that he can journey safely,
    Measure him for boots as well.”

     
    -- Hans Sachs’ Cobbling Song, Meistersinger, Act II (loose translation by the Author)
