‘It’s one of the most extraordinary pieces ever composed’ - Lorenzo Viotti about Der Rosenkavalier
Love and transience are at the heart of this masterpiece by Strauss. In Der Rosenkavalier, Richard Strauss presents a world on the brink of vanishing. The opera artfully balances comic intrigue with poignancy, revealing a set of characters trying to hold on to a life that is an illusion. Their efforts are in vain: the passage of time is relentless, paving the way for a future that lies with the next generation.
