A poet, Olivier, and his rival Flamand, a composer, vie for the primacy of their art and for the love of the Countess whose charm and artistic refinement they find irresistible. Strauss’s final opera has a score filled with warmth, playfulness and a great sense of longing.
In our first collaboration with Santa Fe Opera, Tim Albery (Idomeneo, 2016) directs, Artistic Director Douglas Boyd conducts and we welcome Miah Persson as the Countess.
