Live streamLive stream

Strauss' 'Der Rosenkavalier' is a comic opera in three acts to an original German libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal. It is loosely adapted from the novel Les amours du chevalier de Faublas by Louvet de Couvrai and Molière’s comedy Monsieur de Pourceaugnac. The opera has four main characters: the aristocratic Marschallin, her very young lover Count Octavian Rofrano, her coarse cousin Baron Ochs and Ochs' prospective fiancée Sophie von Faninal, daughter of a rich bourgeois.

Performers: Renée Fleming, Elina Garanca, Erin Morley, Matthew Polenzani, Marcus Brück,  Günther Groissböck.

Metropolitan Opera Choir and Orchestra. Conductor: Sebastian Weigle.
