Katharina's Meistersinger on DVD

I have written some fragmentary lines about Katharina Wagner's Meistersinger DVD on Wagneropera.net. I would love to hear your opinion on the production and the DVD release if you would like to comment here on the Wagner blog.

I've found it completely outrageous that there were no subtitles on the DVD, either English or German. This is such a staging, that without understading of what is being spoken, it almost impossible to follow understand the action. Does the production team really believe that we all speak (and what's even harder understand the sung) German or that we might all know the score by heart.
It was unfortunately too late for me, since I've bought the DVD assuming that there were subtitles, but I would recommend to most to stay away from this DVD because of this reason.
