Richard Jones’s 2014 production of Der Rosenkavalier will be screened in selected cinemas during Tour 2018. Featuring Kate Royal (The Marschallin), Tara Erraught (Octavian), Teodora Gheorghiu (Sophie) and Lars Woldt (Baron Ochs) with sets by Paul Steinberg and costumes by Nicky Gillibrand. Conducted by Robin Ticciati.
The Marschallin adores her lover Octavian. But, at nearly 20 years his senior, she knows that their affair cannot last. So when Octavian meets the beautiful Sophie, she must find a way to let him go. Can she keep Sophie from the clutches of her boorish cousin, the libidinous Baron Ochs, and ensure that young love is triumphant? One of opera’s great romantic comedies, Der Rosenkavalier is a musical fantasy that tempers sweetness with satirical wit, farce with philosophy, humour with pathos.
Brimming with youthful energy and passion, carried along on the lilting rhythms of the waltz, the voluptuous score paints a gilded vision of a fairytale Vienna. Romance is woven through every bar of a lyrical masterpiece that celebrates a world on the brink of change.
