Performance period: 12. Sep. – 24. Jan. 2015

at the Royal Danish Thatre in Copenhagen

Scathing satire, captivating romance and worldly melancholy, Richard Strauss’s masterstroke Der Rosenkavalier was created in partnership with librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal in 1911, bridging comedy and bittersweet romance.miklos1

The working title was Ochs auf Lerchenau, conveying the comic tale of Baron Ochs, whose fiancée is stolen by the young Octavian.miklos2

As work on the opera progressed, the Marschallin’s role nonetheless became more prominent and the operatic creators worked hard to strike a balance between the farcical Baron Ochs and the melodramatic romance in which the Marschallin is embroiled. Eventually, the love story involving the young Octavian, who as Der Rosenkavalier steals the Marschallin’s heart and Baron Ochs’ fiancée, took centre stage.miklos3

Audiences can look forward to experiencing soprano Ann Petersen, alternating with Anne Margrethe Dahl, in the role as the ravishing yet emotionally tormented Marschallin. The brash and jovial Baron Ochs will be performed by Austrian bass baritone Wolfgang Bankl, a familiar face at the Vienna State Opera and at several of Europe’s great opera houses.miklos4

A revival of master director Marco Arturo Marelli’s award-winning staging from 2008, Der Rosenkavalier marks a festive opening of the opera season.

Der Rosenkavalier is performed in German with Danish supertitles.
