Der Rosenkavalier

Though the librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal originally described the
project as "a comedy for music", there is also great emotional depth in
this stirring portrayal of the delights and torments of love. Enhancing
Strauss's lush, late-romantic music are Otto Schenk's rich and witty
staging and, above all, Carlos Kleiber's sensitive conducting.
Internationally acclaimed singers Felicity Lott, Kurt Moll, Anne Sofie von
Otter and Barbara Bonney bring their superb vocal artistry into play to
ensure an unforgettable musical experience.
