Composer: Richard Strauss
The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.

The crowning jewel of Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Opera House is one of the world's great stages. The beauty of the hall is stupendous, but the distance of the rear seating from the stage is dizzying.There are small electronic screens ("Met Titles") in front of every seat that can be activated to show the text of the opera (in English).
