Strauss’ DER ROSENKAVALIER on May 13: Final broadcast of 2016-2017 Met Opera Live-in-HD Broadcast Season
ROCKLAND, Maine - The final broadcast of the 2016 - 2017 Metropolitan Opera’s Live-in-HD season of broadcasts from Lincoln Center to the Strand Theatre, 345 Main Street, will take place on Saturday, May 13 at 12:30pm with Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier. An Encore broadcast will take place Tuesday, May 23 at 12:30pm.
The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and El?na Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, 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. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.
