Arabella

Richard Strauss

A highlight of the 2014 Salzburg Easter Festival, this production of Arabella marks the first time Renée Fleming and Thomas Hampson have performed the opera together in its entirety. Ms. Fleming’s performance in the title role has garnered enthusiastic acclaim, as the New York Times praises, she sings “with the plush sound, sublime lyricism, and dramatic subtlety that have endeared her to opera lovers”.

Strauss’s opera captures the fleeting reverie of youth and Vienna’s Golden Age through the romantic entanglements of two sisters. As Arabella finds the man of her dreams in Mandryka, this marriage is complicated by a case of mistaken identity and confused lovers.  A comedy of errors in the pursuit of true love, Arabella is one of Strauss’s most charming comedic operas.
