The Met: Live in HD: “Der Rosenkavalier”

Apr 15

LT Pick

Der Rosenkavalier has been called Richard Strauss’s most popular and lushest German opera. The story concerns wise woman Marschallin and her much younger lover Octavian. Ultimately forced to accept the laws of time, Marschallin must give up Octavian to a pretty young heiress, all amidst waltzes, fantastic arias, humor, and a darker social commentary that simmers beneath all that Viennese charm. Der Rosenkavalier has been called a “whipped cream-covered, liqueur-soaked confection emerging as the glorious piece of escapism its creators always intended.”
