Met Opera ENCORE: Strauss’s DER ROSENKAVALIER @ The Strand
May 23 @ 12:30 pm

The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elina Garanca as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score. Sung in German with Met titles in English Estimated Run Time: 4 hours 12 min. NOTE: This is an Encore performance (rebroadcast).

The new owner, Bud “the Stud” Davis – a geriatric chick chaser – plans to create a retirement home for women. They cannot move the printing press so Annie and George enlist the aid of Annie’s former sorority sister actress Charmaine Beauregard and their neighbor Contessa Marilena, a flamboyant psychic (aka the Romanian fruitcake) to convince Bud that the house is unsuitable because it is haunted.
