"The casting was absolutely magnificent, offering us the finest voices and well-drawn characters involved in significant drama. “ – Die Presse

Richard Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten

Epic in musical scope and artistic imagination, Strauss and Hofmannsthal’s 1919 work makes extraordinary demands on its five leading singers, the orchestra, and the stage. The score is one of the composer’s richest and most evocative, reflecting the fantastical storyline that weaves together drama, fairy tale, and pure poetry.
