With Salome and Elektra, Richard Strauss had just earned himself a reputation as the enfant terrible of the bourgeoisie on the opera stage, and went, as he wrote, “to the limits of what ears of the day could take." In this work, Strauss and Hofmannsthal drive the artificiality of this world to the extreme in text and music and allow it to grow into a dreamlike and nightmarish scenario. There is room here for all the themes that make Rosenkavalier so fascinating – the possibilities and impossibility of love, the urgency and relentlessness of passing time, the indispensability and relentless conditionality of autonomy and freedom to decide. Barrie Kosky’s Rosenkavalier also pays tribute to mostly less well-known sources of the work, consequently adding surprising facets to the cherished characters of Sophie and Octavian, Ochs and Marschallin, and in opulent images, he adds an exciting chapter to the piece’s Munich staging history. Ms. Hankey returns to the Bayerische Staatsoper stage as Octavian in Barrie Kosky's production of Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier. Conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.
