Opera: Strauss's Ariadne
Saturday, Jan 19, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English
In this fun and ingenious story of Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos, a mysterious mogul has commissioned an evening of exotic entertainment for an exclusive dinner party: a dramatic opera based on the myth of Ariadne, plus a comical troupe of clowns. But plans for the evening are derailed and both entertainments must be presented simultaneously! Divas collide and lowbrow comedy meets high art in this new, made-for-Cleveland production. A world-renowned cast led by the remarkable American soprano Tamara Wilson joins Franz and The Cleveland Orchestra in a side-splitting collision of music and laugher for three fully-staged performances.
