Rest in aft, & have late tea at 5.0 (eggs & things) & go off to opera to see Meistersinger. Any trace of illness is then obliviated by the Prelude, & we enjoy a wonderful evening. Krauss conducted very well - one or two speeds weren't mine but on the whole, fine - the orchestra superb as usual. Prohaska was a very lovable Sachs, who poured forth volumes of lovely sound, & acted excellently. Ursuleac lookd & sounded very lovely as Eva. As Walther, Kalenberg wasnt so good - looked nice & acted well but too small a voice, Beckmesser (Weidemann) & David (Zimmermann) both first-rate actors & singers, the first rather pathetic in his comedy, the second lively to the utmost degree. The five hours of the music didn't seem as many minutes; the incredible vitality, modernity, richness & lovely melody, humour, pathos in fact every favorable quality. As a stage show, just 'it'; esp. the glorious Act 2
