Bayerische Staatsoper

R. Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier (opera in concert)

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, set during the reign of the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa, is a bittersweet tale of love lost and found. Sweeping waltzes, unsurpassed ensembles—especially the gorgeous final trio—and stunning orchestration bring Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s witty libretto to life. Rhapsodic, comic, and deeply moving, Der Rosenkavalier is Strauss’s crowning operatic achievement.
