About

Legendary Performances Series

Richard Strauss' musical comedy Der Rosenkavalier has a deep-rooted performance tradition at the Salzburg Festival, but Robert Carsen's new reading opened up a new view of this operatic staple while Semyon Bychkov, leading the Vienna Philharmonic and a cast of internationally renowned singers, guaranteed a high musical standard.

Semyon Bychkov conducts Strauss with flexible nuances and a great deal of energy. The musical side of the performance was additionally sustained by the experience and long-standing Strauss tradition of the Vienna Philharmonic.

Carsen marked the work with a coherent vision, cleverly holding its three acts and almost 200 stage personnel together. The wide stage of the Grosses Festspielhaus allowed him to keep the main action centre stage, while the surrounding spaces were used to comment on the action.
