For many, the most beautiful of all the Strauss operas: Der Rosenkavalier. A mixture of melancholy, wisdom and comedy, emotional efficacy and grandiose narrative gestures. The creative partnership between kindred spirits Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal produced music and a text whose ability to move transcends its human and interpersonal themes: unsurpassed and unfailingly touching. And a traditional production of the Wiener Staatsoper which has been performed 1000 times!
