CAPRICCIO

"The performance over all, sensitively conducted by Andrew Davis and featuring a winning cast, made an excellent case for Strauss' final opera"

The New York Times

On Opening Night of the 2008–09 season, Renée Fleming dazzled audiences when she sang the final scene of Strauss’s wise and worldly meditation on art and life. Now she performs the entire work, in which the composer explores the essence of opera itself. Matthew Polenzani and Sarah Connolly also star, and Andrew Davis conducts.

 

This realistic production by John Cox, introduced in 1998, moves the setting from the 1770s to the 1920s. For this revival, new costumes and décors were designed by Robert Perdziola.
