Notes and Editorial Reviews

From the January 2009 Baden-Baden Festival, Renée Fleming appears in one of her greatest roles—the Marschallin, in Richard Strauss’s magnificent comedy of ever-changing love, Der Rosenkavalier. Her peerless performance is supported by “a galactic cast” (conductor Christian Thielemann), which includes Diana Damrau, Sophie Koch, Franz Hawlata and Jonas Kaufmann as the Italian Tenor.
