Der Rosenkavalier

Der RosenkavalierT545882674
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.
Music Strauss
Lyrics Hofmannsthal

Production details

Bittersweet, erotic and tenderly compassionate, John Schlesinger's refined and detailed production of Stauss's great comedy of love and 18th century manners returns to The Royal Opera's repertory after an absence of five years. Christian Thielemann, widely acclaimed for his interpretations of German late Romantic music, conducts the opera for the first time at Covent Garden.
