The Viennese aristocracy are no strangers to family feuds: boorish Baron Ochs auf Lerchenau interrupts the morning tête-à-tête between his cousin, the Marschallin, and her young lover Octavian, to ask for her help with his wedding plans, which are steered more by financial gain than love. Ochs does not suspect that Octavian himself, who is chosen to deliver the engagement rose, will eventually fall in love with the bride.
Multimedia artist André Heller makes his highly anticipated debut as stage director at the Berlin State Opera with Richard Strauss’ tragicomic ‘Rosenkavalier’ and the critics are full of praise: “With his staging of ‘Rosenkavalier’, André Heller sets a monument to flawlessness” (Die Zeit).
Master conductor Zubin Mehta leads the fantastic orchestra of the Staatskapelle Berlin and a “cast of singers, above all with Camilla Nylund + Günther Groissböck, which is unsurpassable” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). Michèle Losier + Nadine Sierra make their role debuts as Octavian and as Sophie. A Rosenkavalier production with a dream cast! The stage design is created by the internationally acclaimed painter Xenia Hausner, the costumes are the work of fashion shooting star Arthur Arbesser. The opulent decor is inspired by Belle Époque and Art Nouveau.
„One has hardly ever seen a more splendid, elegant and opulent Rosenkavalier.“ (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
