Wiener Staatsoper


Produktion: Marco Arturo Marelli
Stage design: Marco Arturo Marelli
Costumes: Dagmar Niefind
Choreography: Lukas Gaudernak

This is an opera about opera as an art form. Richard Strauss’s late work follows the creation of a piece for music theatre, focusing on the world of the theatre with astute merriment and full understanding of this genre. The key question: text or music – which takes precedence? Capriccio is in equal measure a stock character play, a tender declaration of love, a clever altercation and a fine chamber drama. Director and scene designer Marco Arturo Marelli has staged this tongue-in-cheek legacy piece with
great poetic power and designed shimmeringly beautiful images.
