The Met: Live in HD: Der Rosenkavalier in Cinemas on Saturday

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 places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.

This broadcast performance will literally be Renée Fleming’s last performance of this role in this opera.  This marks her farewell performance AND IS NOT TO BE MISSED!

Richard Strauss
Production by Robert Carsen
