Der Rosenkavalier (R. Strauss) -- Salzburg Festival, Austria (2014)
Genre: OPERA (new production)
Running time: 3 hrs, 35 mins (sung in Italian, with English subtitles)
Conductor: Franz Welser-Most
Director: Harry Kupfer
Sets: Hans Schavernoch
Costumes: Yan Tax
Lighting: Jurgen Hoffmann

Cast: Sophie Koch, Krassimira Stoyanova, Mojca Erdmann, Silvana Dussmann, Wiebke Lehmkuhl, Gunther Groissbock, Adrian Erod, and Kresimir Spicer
Synopsis: Beneath the surface of its lightly flowing dialogue and sumptuous music, Der Rosenkavalier explores the progress of human relations, both personal and societal. Beginning with the scandalous love affair of young Octavian and the older, yet enchanting Marschallin, the opera examines Octavian’s metamorphosis, as youthful entanglements transform into romantic commitment. The Marschallin embodies our wistful nostalgia at the passage of time, serving as a counterpoint to the Octavian’s dreamy and impetuous youthful romance. In the world of Der Rosenkavalier, Strauss and his librettist, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, summon a half-imaginary, half-real Vienna of 1740, capturing both the intricacies of aristocratic ceremony and the temporality of human existence..

March 27 (12 noon) & 29 (7:15pm)
Tosca (Puccini) -- Opera Royal de Wallonie -- Liege (2015)

Synopsis: Puccini’s fifth opera, Tosca marks an important transition in Puccini’s work. His previous opera, La Boheme, considered by many to be his first masterpiece, is at the same time, the last of Puccini’s work portray the struggles and dreams of society’s lower classes. With Tosca, Puccini returns to the purest tragedy, focusing on the violent and tragic downfall of three historic figures. Tosca is a highly focused opera, concentrated around the complex and fully developed psychologies of its three main characters. Inspired by the riveting performance of Sarah Bernhardt in the play by Victorien Sardou, Puccini artfully crafted the jealousy, turmoil and despair of the entrancing Floria Tosca. After a period of tormented and stormy writing with his librettists, Puccini finalized his composition just days before the opera’s premiere on January 14, 1900 at Teatro Constanzi in Rome.
