Der Rosenkavalier (R. Strauss)

Saturday, May 13, 9:30 am
Sunday, May 21, 1:00 pm
Approx. runtime: 4:50

New Production - Two Intermissions
 
The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Music Director James Levine conducts the sparklingly perfect score. 
 
Stassya Pacheco returns for a pre-opera lecture prior to every Saturday live transmission, 30 minutes before the start time. Also, Saturday operas offer the option of pre-ordering your lunch from Pacioni's Market. Pre-order lunches are made up during the opera and ready for you to enjoy during the intermission. We will also have recorded encore screenings of all performances.
