Der Rosenkavalier

Director: Robert Carsen; Composer: R Strauss; Conductor: Andris Nelsons; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Renee Fleming, Alice Coote, Rachel Willis-Sorensen

Richard Strauss's Viennese comedy "Der Rosenkavalier" tells the tale of the Marschallin and Octavian, who tries to save the beautiful young Sophie von Faninal from a loveless marriage with the elderly Baron Ochs.

By disguising himself as a serving wench, Octavian manages to grab the lecherous Baron's attentions and carefully arranges for Sophie's father to see it, leaving her free to marry Octavian instead.


Renee Fleming is a celebrated American soprano who has performed in all of the world’s great opera houses and concert halls. Her best-known roles include the lead in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Verdi’s La Traviata and Otello, and Massenet’s Thais and Manon.
