Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier

Strauss and Hofmannsthal’s bittersweet comedy, first staged in 1911, masterfully combines humor (of both the sophisticated and the slapstick kind) with genuine emotion and human drama. The ravishing final trio of the three leading female voices is among the most celebrated pieces in the operatic repertoire.
