LA MONNAIE DE MUNT

Der Rosenkavalier

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 Richard Strauss’s wonderful score – one of the most refined in the entire repertoire – can fully blossom at the hands of conductor Alain Altinoglu.
