Der Rosenkavalier - R. Strauss
Richard Strauss’ light-hearted comedy “Der Rosenkavalier” combines music, literature and customs. In doing so, it paints an extremely realistic picture of Vienna in the 1840s - even if the tradition of the Rosenkavalier, who delivers a silver rose to the bride on behalf of the groom for the courtship, is an invention. For the libretto, Strauss (1864-1949) had once again teamed up with his friend and literary figure Hugo von Hoffmannsthal. “Der Rosenkavalie” was one of the composer’s most popular works, and in addition to the opera, the non-musical play version was also very popular with audiences. Strauss and von Hoffmannsthal had a very precise idea of their characters: be it the beautiful Field Marshal Princess Werdenberg, who was unhappily married at a very young age, now in her early 30s mourning her youth and distracting herself with amorous adventures; or Baron Ochs auf Lerchenau, a nobleman, albeit somewhat coarse and at the same time an outspoken womanizer, who would like to marry the blood-young Sophie primarily for her dowry, but is himself available for any hanky-panky. Not only in terms of content, but also musically, “Der Rosenkavalier” differs greatly from the two previously composed, avant-garde operas “Salome” and “Elektra”; Viennese waltzes and folk melodies, Baroque allusions with Romantic sensibility are mixed in.

Staatsoper
Rusalka - A. Dvořák
The lyrical fairy tale "Rusalka" was premiered in Prague in 1901. The touching and idyllic musical work by Antonín Dvořák transports the opera-goer into a colorful, atmospheric-melancholic dream world of timeless beauty and elegance. The vocal soloists find grateful tasks through the catchy and cantabile melodies - Dvořák also finally achieved his breakthrough in the stage dramatic field with his most successful opera. The story of an attempted incarnation fails, even though the mermaid Rusalka is able to take on human form and follow her beloved prince into his kingdom. However, in order to obtain a soul, she must bear the consequence mentioned by the witch Ježibaba: the transformed woman must remain mute. From now on, the prince experiences Rusalka as a stranger and soon succumbs to the seduction of another woman. Nature and human coexistence remain incompatible: as prophesied by Aquarius, Rusalka cannot experience the longingly awaited earthly happiness of love - nor is the prince’s romantic desire for an idealized, free-spirited world of nature fulfilled.
Rusalka - A. Dvořák, the 31

Elīna Garanča then joined the Meiningen Theater troupe, then the Frankfurt one and finally the Vienna State Opera. In 2003 Elīna Garanča became known internationally by singing the role of Annio in Mozart’s La Clémence de Titus at the Salzburg Festival under the baton of Nikolaus Harnoncourt. On the strength of her success, she begins to do a series of roles.
