Die Frau ohne Schatten

"A shining hour", trumpeted Vienna's Kurier after the premiere of Richard
Strauss' "Die Frau ohne Schatten" at the Salzburg Festival, which was also
the premiere of Christian Thielemann as opera conductor there. True to the
Festival's tradition, this production features a line-up of great Strauss
singers, such as Anne Schwanewilms, Stephen Gould, Wolfgang Koch,
Michaela Schuster and Evelyn Herlitzius. Christof Loy's production is set
in the mid 1950s in the Sofiensäle, a celebrated Viennese recording studio
at the time. The singers portray singers from the Wiener Staatsoper
recording "Die Frau ohne Schatten".
