About the Show Less...

An alternative take on the romantic comedy of Der Rosenkavalier. Read More >

Arabella’s determination to find her Mr Right is at the centre of the story of this, Strauss and Hofmannsthal’s last collaboration. Their alternative take on the romantic comedy of Der Rosenkavalier is presented in a stunning new co-production with Le Châtelet, already given a rapturous reception in Paris. Glamour and chic are at the heart of Erich Wonder’s designs for the set and Andrea Schmidt-Futterer’s for costume, while Peter Mussbach draws them together in a production that brings a revealing, edgy and contemporary truth to a Viennese comedy of manners.
