Strauss: Ariadne auf Naxos, Op. 60
When the wealthiest man in Vienna hosts a lavish night of music and fireworks, the entertainment is in no short supply—and neither is the drama. In a farcical twist of fate, a brash burlesque troupe and a buttoned-up opera company must now perform together on the same stage. The two groups argue, flirt, and fight for the spotlight as the comic preparations of the first act transform into a beautiful opera-within-an-opera.
Fully staged production with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in German with English supertitles.
The Curtis Opera Theatre season is sponsored by the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation. The Aurora Series for Chamber Opera at the Perelman Theater is underwritten by the Wyncote Foundation. The production is funded, in part, through support from the William Penn Foundation.
