Strauss: Ariadne Auf Naxos


Add To Wish List + £24.99 - Out of stock

Ariadne auf Naxos is one of many beautifully crafted operas created by Richard Strauss and his librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal. In the compelling production from the Zurich Opera, recorded on this DVD, Christoph von Dohnany leads a particularly strong cast of singer-actors in a thrilling interpretation of the work. Ariadne is sung by the American soprano Emily Magee, who has received worldwide praise for her performances in works by both Wagner and Strauss. The German-born Italian tenor Roberto Sacca, who is regarded as one of the leading lyric tenors of his generation, takes the part of Bacchus. Both made their role debuts under Christoph von Dohnanyi's subtle yet sensual leadership, and both were acclaimed for their vocal radiance, subtle handling of the text and the care that they lavished on the technical aspects of their parts. The critics were also captivated by the rest of the brilliant cast: Elena Mosuc (Zerbinetta) lightly mastered the incredible heights of her role, Michael Volle was a vocally resplendent Music Master and Michelle Breedt a touching Composer. An entertaining and intelligently crafted production of one of the key operas exploring the intertextuality that occurs between"real life" and what today would be called"virtual reality".

"Astuteness, wit and artistic understanding combine in this production to produce an evening that once again reveals the Zurich Opera at its best."Neue Zurcher Zeitung
