Strauss
Der Rosenkavalier

The sensational Risë Stevens leads the cast in this spectacular performance of Strauss’s masterwork in one of her most memorable roles, the young Count Octavian. The passionate aristocrat finds himself caught between two women—the gracious, worldly-wise Marschallin, sung by Irene Jessner, and the beautiful young Sophie, played by Eleanor Steber, at the beginning of her exceptional career. Emanuel List is Baron Ochs, a role he owned for many years. This extraordinary cast is conducted by the legendary Fritz Busch, who perfectly balances the score’s intimacy and grandeur.
