"… Della Casa soars…with the creamiest, most beautiful sounds and constantly charms one with her swiftly alternating moods of seriousness and gaiety... Edelmann otherwise is superb, as fine a Count as he was as Ochs in the Karjan recording of Rosenkavalier. Gueden too is ideally cast as Zdenka." - Penguin Guide

Richard Strauss’s Arabella

The final collaboration of Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, first seen in 1933, is a touching and nostalgic love story set in mid-19th-century Vienna. Hofmannsthal’s untimely death put a premature end to one of the greatest composer–librettist partnerships in operatic history.
