One of opera’s great romantic comedies, Der Rosenkavalier is a musical fantasy that tempers sweetness with satirical wit, farce with philosophy, humour with pathos. Brimming with youthful energy and passion, carried along on the lilting rhythms of the waltz, the voluptuous score paints a gilded vision of a fairytale Vienna. Romance is woven through every bar of a lyrical masterpiece that celebrates a world on the brink of change. From the opening aria to the ecstatic closing trio, Strauss’s opera glitters as brightly as the silver rose at its heart.
A revival of the Festival 2014 production. Sung in German with English supertitles.
