The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča
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. Music Director James Levine conducts the sparklingly

Premiere: Court Opera, Dresden, 1911. Set in an idealized Vienna of
the past, Strauss’s most popular opera concerns a wise woman of the
world who is involved with a much younger lover but ultimately
forced to accept the laws of time, giving him up to a pretty young
heiress. Hofmannsthal’s fascinating libretto deftly combines comedy,
dreamy nostalgic fantasy, genuine human drama, and light but
striking touches of philosophy and social commentary. Strauss’s
magnificent score, likewise, works on several levels, combining the
refinement of Mozart with the epic grandeur of Wagner.
