About

Richard Strauss’s musically ravishing comic masterpiece is given a visual updating in director Richard Jones’s stylish and ‘gently subversive’ Glyndebourne staging, one which offers ‘a dreamlike distortion not just of Vienna’s 18th-century past, but also of everything we know about reality’ (Financial Times).

Created to mark the 150th centenary of the composer’s birth, the production is packed with energy and wit, its impeccable stagecraft by no means detracting from the first class singing which underpins, among others, Tara Erraught’s ‘touching’ (Guardian) performance as Octavian, Kate Royal’s ‘most graceful of Marschallins’ and Lars Woldt’s ‘pitch-perfect’ Baron Ochs (Sunday Telegraph).

Conductor Robin Ticciati brings clarity and detail to the score, infusing the music with spirit and humanity.
