The Wiener Staatsoper mounted this particular production of the opera in 2008. It stars Falk Struckmann as Hans Sachs, Ain Anger as Veit Pogner, Adrian Eröd as Sixtus Beckmesser and Ricarda Merbeth as Eva. Wolfgang Gröller and Lukas Gaudernak did the choreography; the Chorus of the Wiener Staatsoper and the Orchester und Buchorchester der Wiener Staatsoper provide musical accompaniment.
