About

Der Rosenkavalier. And just before it came the ear-bending Elektra. Just after, that "opera within an opera within an Italian comedy," Ariadne auf Naxos. Is this the same composer who writes all three, within a five-year period? With these three distinctive pieces, Strauss's expansive imagination conjures an avant-garde challenge, a romantic comedy, and a multi-leveled tour de force. Saul Lilienstein demonstrates how Richard Strauss embodies a recognizable creative presence in these operas.

Performance Timing: 90 minutes
