Soprano Renée Fleming heads "a galactic cast" in this bittersweet comedy of love as the Marschallin, using her velvety tones to complement the dynamic, youthful voice of Sophie Koch as her young lover Octavian. Diana Damrau's Sophie enhances the trio's range with her ethereal high notes. Next to Franz Hawlata as a swaggering Baron Ochs and the always impressive Franz Grundheber as Faninal, the Baden-Baden production rounds off its male leads with international tenor star Jonas Kaufmann as the "Italian Singer." Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal's masterpiece combines humor with genuine emotion and drama.

Dedicated to presenting high-quality opera productions and concerts featuring internationally renowned performers and directors, Opera Naples in Naples, Fla. is an artistic powerhouse. Since its inception, the company has presented such well-known grand operas as "La bohème," "Carmen," "Faust, "La Traviata," "Madama Butterfly," "Rigoletto," "Tosca" and more.
