By Richard Strauss

The Marschallin, a 30-something aristocrat, is having an affair with the much younger Count Octavian. Although fearful he will leave her for a younger woman, she engineers the first meeting between her lover and the beautiful young Sophie, who is being forced into marriage with the unloveable Baron Ochs – with inevitable consequences. Perfectly poised between comedy and pathos, Der Rosenkavalier supplies an evening of gorgeous music, sumptuous costumes, and romantic intrigue, by turns comic and moving.

Sung in German with English titles. Please note there are two intervals, and the production begins at 6.30pm

Free ticketed Pre Performance talk

Wed 2 & Sat 5 Nov 5.30pm – 6.00pm. Please book with Box Office.
