Photo Flash: First Look at Renee Fleming and Elina Garanca in Strauss's DER ROSENKAVALIER at The Met
The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and El?na Garan?a as Octavian star in Strauss's grandest opera, Der Rosenkavalier, April 13-May 13. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met's recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera's subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.

Production a gift of Howard Solomon and Sarah Billinghurst Solomon
