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.

Christian Thielemann
Christian Thielemann has been one of the great German conductors of our time for years. Born in 1959 in what was then West Berlin, he began his professional career in his native city at the Deutsche Oper under none other than Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989). Via various stations in Karlsruhe and Düsseldorf, among others, he moved to Nuremberg in 1988 as - at that time - the youngest General Music Director. Nine years later, Thielemann returned to Berlin to the Deutsche Oper, then led the Munich Philharmonic from 2004 to 2011, in each case also in the positions of general music director. Thielemann has been involved with the Bayreuth Festival since 2010. In 2015, he was appointed music director there. In the 2012/13 season, he moved to Dresden to join the Sächsische Staatskapelle, and in 2013 he additionally took on the position of artistic director at the Salzburg Easter Festival. Christian Thielemann maintains close ties with the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras. Thielemann has received numerous awards and honors for his achievements, including his honorary doctorate from the Hochschule für Musik ´Franz Liszt` Weimar, the Richard Wagner Prize, the Prize of the Foundation for the Promotion of the Semper Opera, and honorary membership of the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Gustav Mahler Association Hamburg.
