Die Liebe der Danae

The rarely performed opera "Die Liebe der Danae" is a feast for
Strauss lovers, with arias, ensembles and orchestral interludes blazing
with sumptuous colors and rich textures. Written under war clouds and
completed in 1940, it is the swan song of an aged composer who is
taking leave from the world on the eve of the catastrophe that will
engulf it. This timeless production from the Deutsche Oper Berlin can
be seen as the mirror of a changing world order, with a wonderfully
suggestive symbol dominating the stage during all three acts: a grand
piano suspended upside-down from the rafters.
