The third and final Strauss opera of the ROH season. Read More >

Christopher Loy’s lavish production of Strauss’ opera about opera receives its first revival after its successful debut last season. As the casts of a serious opera and a harlequinade are suddenly thrust together at the whim of their rich patron, comedy and mythology collide to spectacular effect.

Sung in German with English surtitles.
