Starring Celine Byrne, Paula Murrihy and Claudia Boyle. “Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier is a gilded fantasy of Vienna—all waltzes and silver filigree—cross-pollinated with the antics of comic opera” The New Yorker A ravishing recreation of Richard Strauss’s nostalgic immersion in eighteenth-century Vienna, Der Rosenkavalier features the greatest-ever trio for three female voices.


Love and lust. Culture and crudity. Disguise and deceit. Masters and servants. Opulence to die for. Raging hormones fuel the aristocratic intrigues in Richard Strauss’s indulgently Viennese celebration of the extravagant lifestyle of a bygone age. The orchestra is sumptuous. The sopranos soar with heart-stopping beauty. Operatic nostalgia doesn’t come any finer than this. Major Irish opera stars leading this cast include Celine Byrne as The Marschallin, mezzo-soprano Paula Murrihy as Octavian, and soprano Claudia Boyle as Sophie.
