Set in an idealized Vienna of the past, Strauss’s most popular opera 'Der Rosenkavalier' concerns a wise woman of the world who is involved with a much younger lover but ultimately forced to accept the laws of time, giving him up to a pretty young heiress.
Hofmannsthal’s fascinating libretto deftly combines comedy, dreamy nostalgic fantasy, genuine human drama, and light but striking touches of philosophy and social commentary.
Strauss’s magnificent score combines the refinement of Mozart with the epic grandeur of Wagner as Renee Fleming and Elina Garanca star as the dream cast of 'Der Rosenkavalier'.
Sung in German with English subtitles.
