Vienna, in the golden age of the Empress Maria Theresa. The Feldmarschallin, beautiful and married, has a besotted young lover, Count Octavian. But Octavian is half her age, and the Feldmarschallin knows that one day she must give him up to a younger woman. How soon will that time come? When the boorish Baron Ochs charges Octavian to present a silver rose (a traditional engagement gift) on his behalf, Octavian comes face to face with the delightful Sophie; the Feldmarschallin is the first to realise what is going on. RevivalPerformers Yvonne Kenny (The Feldmarschallin), Susan Parry (Octavian), Stephen Richardson (Baron Ochs), Linda Richardson (Sophie), Andrew Shore (Herr von Faninal), Rebecca de Pont Davies (Annina), John Graham-Hall (Valzacchi), Susan Stacey (Duenna), Anthony Mee (Italian tenor), Mark Beesley (Commissar of Police), Rhys Meirion (Major-Domo to the Feldmarschallin), Richard Roberts (Major-Domo to Faninal).
