Description

For the first time on DVD, a rare chance to watch the legendary Carlos Kleiber conducting one of his trademark operas in Otto Schenk's classic staging of Der Rosenkavalier. Filmed in 1979, this delightful staging by Otto Schenk features outstanding singer-actresses Gwyneth Jones, Brigitte Fassbaender and Lucia Popp. The release on DVD of this version of Strauss' opera has been eagerly anticipated by opera lovers. It has been universally praised as both the best conducted and probably the best sung performance of the opera ever to be filmed. Der Rosenkavalier is Richard Strauss's most popular opera and the greatest comic opera since Mozart. Premiered just three years before the start of the First World War, the opera traces the artistic heritage of the Austrian-Hungarian empire in the days of Mozart, where the story is set, to the morbid distraction of the Viennese Art Nouveau.
