This 2014 release of Capriccio celebrates the 150th birthday of Richard Strauss. The world-class cast includes includes Renée Fleming, Bo Skovhus, Michael Schade, and Angelika Kirchschlager.

“Renée Fleming is a world-class Countess, moving and intense…All around her there is luxury casting: Bo Skovhus as the Count, Michael Schade as Flamand, Markus Eiche as Olivier, Kurt Rydl as the theatre director La Roche, the wonderful Angelika Kirchschlager as Clairon – all strike exactly the right note, as do the singers in the smaller roles, turning this Capriccio into an event of the first importance.” - Kurier

Why you should own this: A) If you want to see this opera set in the period, to me, this just tops them all. It’s the over-the-top glitz and glamour of the 18th century through a modern lens. B) The first rate and very interestingly sung Countess of Renée Fleming. This is my third DVD of this opera with her singing the Countess and honestly, she goes completely IN on all of her German training giving you something totally different in terms of style and interpretation. She surpasses her own performances at the Paris Opera and the Met in recent years (which are gorgeous in their own rite — I have both of them on DVD, too!). In this production, the Final Scene is particularly ravishing. – Wade Davis, Operagasm
