Strauss
Der Rosenkavalier

This all-star cast is conducted by James Levine who brings out all the sumptuous colors and sweeping rhythms of Richard Strauss’s enchanting Viennese fairy-tale opera. Renée Fleming, in one of her signature roles, is Princess von Werdenberg, the wise and wonderful Marschallin who captures everyone’s heart as she gracefully accepts the passing of time, even though it means the loss of a love. Susan Graham is the impetuous Octavian, youthful lover of the Marschallin, who then falls instantly in love with young Sophie (Heidi Grant Murphy) while presenting her with the silver rose that marks her engagement to Baron Ochs (Franz Hawlata)—a situation as fraught with comic complications as it is tearful emotions. With Hans-Joachim Ketelsen as Sophie’s father, Faninal.
