About the event

This striking early 20th-century classic is followed by three riveting performances from two of Strauss’s most popular operatic works. His satirical 1912 opera within an opera, Ariadne auf Naxos, is a theatrical battle between lighthearted comedy and dramatic tragedy. In the quintet “Die Dame gibt mit trübem Sinn,” the commedia dell’arte troupe of Brighella, Truffaldino, Scaramuccio, and Harlequin attempt to lift the spirits of saucy comedienne Zerbinetta with a charming song and dance number. This moment of comic levity is followed by the Act II opening of Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, featuring the ceremonious presentation of a silver rose and a rapturous love duet. The set concludes with the opera’s sublime Act III trio, as the Marschallin blesses the union of young lovers Octavian and Sophie.
