Description

Ariadne auf Naxos on DVD

Richard Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos is one of the early 20th century's most peculiar operatic works. It's narrative derives from the famous myth of Ariadne, who is abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos and eventually falls in love with the god Bacchus. This opera is, however, preceded by an extensive modern prologue in which a young Composer finds himself tortured by egotistical artists complicating preparations for the opera's production in an eternal struggle between comedy and high art. Set in the beautiful Teatro della Pergola in Florence, Matthias Hartmann's 2022 production was a triumphant success both for it's soloists and conductor Daniele Gatti in his first season as musical director at the Maggio Musicale Foundation.
