Presentation
Time is a strange thing. When we don’t heed it, it’s absolutely nothing. But then, suddenly, it’s all you notice.— Die Feldmarschallin

The mystery of time resonates throughout Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s highly spiritual and nostalgia-filled libretto, for which Richard Strauss – known until then as the avant-garde composer of Salome and Elektra – took a step back in time to eighteenth-century Vienna. Waltzing in neoclassical style, with sublime vocal lyricism and a refined orchestral palette, this work looks back through Mozart’s nostalgia-filled lens at time past, faded beauty, lost loves. Director Damiano Michieletto has set this intimate study of the human psyche in a snow-white dreamworld marked by a dash of humour and surrealism, while Strauss’s wonderful score – one of the most refined in the entire repertoire – can fully blossom at the hands of conductor Alain Altinoglu.
