Available on Blu-ray: Renée Fleming’s debut in the role of Ariadne was filmed by veteran video director Brian Large, with Christian Thielemann conducting.

“The chief glory of the evening was hearing Renée Fleming…  As the possessor of what is, possibly, the most beautiful soprano voice in the world, she put her vocal treasures in the service of an empathic, nuanced interpretation of the role. From the creamy top, through a rich, warm middle, to the bewitching, darker colours of her lower register, Fleming poured her magnificent sound into Strauss’s enchanting melodic arcs, animating the sadness, vulnerability, and desire of the bereft princess...”  – Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
