Before retiring two of their signature roles, the dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian unite for one last time in Strauss’s grandest opera.

In his acclaimed new production, Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs.

“A Rosenkavalier not to be missed!”, hailed the Huffington Post.
