Ariadne auf Naxos

Musical Direction: Thomas Guggeis
Production: Sven-Eric Bechtolf

Regarded by many as the ultimate collaboration between Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, the witty musical comedy Ariadne auf Naxos tells the story of the hopes and dreams of a young composer crushed by harsh (theatre) reality; of heartbroken ladies and of taking love and life as it comes. Last but not least, the opera raises questions of human trust, change and constancy, inadvertence and freedom.
