Ariadne Auf Naxos


In German with English Captions

First Performed Vienna, 1916

Italian slapstick and effervescence combine in Richard Strauss’s opera Ariadne auf Naxos. A delightfully rhapsodic story of love lost and love found, Ariadne features one of the most spectacular coloratura arias in all of opera. That, along with soaring arias and whimsical theater, has made this opera a hit with audiences all over the world.
