Notes and Editorial Reviews

Staged and directed by Otto Schenk

STEREO: PCM / SURROUND: DTS 5.1
Subtitles: German/English/French/Spanish/Chinese

* Filmed in 1979, this delightful staging by Otto Schenk features outstanding singer-actresses Gwyneth Jones, Brigitte Fassbaender and Lucia Popp.

* Der Rosenkavalier is Richard Strauss’s most popular opera and the greatest comic opera since Mozart.

* Premiered just three years before the start of the First World War, the opera traces the artistic heritage of the Austrian-Hungarian empire in the days of Mozart, where the story is set, to the morbid distraction of the Viennese Art Nouveau.
