Decca Classics and The Metropolitan Opera present Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier, featuring a star-studded cast including Renée Fleming and Elina Garanca.
This is Renée Fleming’s last ever performance of the Marschallin, one of her signature roles, as performed at the Metropolitan Opera following a run at London’s Royal Opera House earlier this year.
This new and notable production sees Robert Carsen update the setting to Vienna in 1911, the year of the opera’s premiere.
“The dramatic chemistry between Ms. Fleming and Ms. Garanca came through in their every exchange” New York Times
“[Renée Fleming] sings the arching melodic line that begins Strauss’s transcendent trio with seamless phrasing and ethereal sound, her more mature voice blending poignantly with the youthful colorings of Ms. Morley and Ms. Garanca.” The New Yorker
‘[Renée Fleming’s] singing…had all the gilded smoothness one could want” The Guardian (on Royal Opera House performance)
