Decca Classics and The Metropolitan Opera present Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier, featuring the “dramatic chemistry” (New York Times) of Renée Fleming and Elina Garanca.
This is Renée Fleming’s last ever performance of the Marschallin, one of her signature roles, as performed at the MET following a run at London’s Royal Opera House earlier this year. This new production from Robert Carsen updates the setting to Vienna in 1911, the year of the opera’s premiere.
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.
