Details

An operatic divertissement to be performed in an abridged version of Moliere's comedy Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. Both pignant and comic, Ariadne auf Naxos is an opera within an opera. The curtain opens on a Viennese salon where preparations are being made for a performance of an opera. There is consternation when the Major Domo (Chied Butler) announces that due to time pressure, a harlequin troupe will be performing comedy during the opera itself. The conflicting scenarios and contrasting characters reveal what happens when stand-up comedy meets Greek tragedy and music hall meets high art. Sung in German with surtitles in English

Performers Orla Boylan (Ariadne), Sarah Connolly (Composer), Gillian Keith (Zerbinetta), Eric Roberts (Major-Domo), Robert Poulton (Music Master), Stephen Rooke (Dancing Master).
Music Strauss. Lyrics Hofmannsthal. Company Welsh National Opera. Conductor Lothar Koenigs. Director Neil Armfield.
