Conversation piece for music in one act | Text by Clemens Krauss and Richard Strauss | In German with supertitles
Text or music – in opera, which one is more important? This age-old music history question inspired Richard Strauss’s last opera. In a colorful and amusing chamber setting, Strauss artfully reflects on 300 years of music theater, offering his not uncontroversial answer to the question of the artist’s role in society.
