About

Not many masterpieces have premiered at the Vienna State Opera. Die Frau ohne Schatten, the fourth collaboration between Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, made one of the few exceptions. On the evening of 25 May 2019, the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Vienna State Opera, a star-studded festival première of Richard Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten took place at Vienna State Opera. Together with his librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Strauss, at the time director of the opera house, developed a fairytale, complex and psychologically discriminating work that received its world première a hundred years ago, on 10 October 1919 at the opera house on the Ring. Since then, Die Frau ohne Schatten has enjoyed a rich performance history and is regarded as a special highlight of Viennese and international music theatre.
