A comedy for music
Music by Richard Strauss
Libretto by Hugo von Hoffmansthal
Sung in German with English surtitles.
The Viennese have a custom: when you are to be married, the Knight of the Rose ceremoniously delivers a silver rose from your fiancÚ as a sign of your engagement. But you are not supposed to fall in love with the messenger! Nostalgic waltzes permeate this sublime score, conjuring up old Vienna in all its glory, while lavish costumes and scenery form a backdrop to a story that is one part autumnal romance and one part romp. This special event is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience this opera in an intimate setting.
