Filmed live in Baden-Baden by the veteran video director Brian Large, Renée Fleming makes her debut in the role of Ariadne. Christian Thielemann conducts.

“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
