Der Rosenkavalier (“The Knight of the Rose”) has some of the most sublime music ever written. This comic opera by Richard Strauss and the poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal is suffused with the gaiety of Vienna during the reign of Empress Maria Theresa with it’s sparkling waltzes but also the spirit and grace of Mozart. In addition to its madcap comic scenes and daring plot twists, there are moments when time seems to stand still, when the music and lyrics become evanescent and comedy gives way to bitter-sweet musings on life, the passing of time and nostalgia for lost love.
Sung in German with English supertitles.
