Strauss' 'Die Frau ohne Schatten' is an opera in three acts with a libretto by his long-time collaborator, the poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal. The opera's story is set in the mythical empire of the Southeastern Islands and involves five principal characters: the Emperor, the Empress, her Nurse, Barak, a lowly dye, and the Dyer's Wife. A sixth character, Keikobad, King of the Spirit Realm and father to the Empress, sets the plot in motion, but never appears on stage. Performers:
