Revival of the production created in 2020.
With Anja Harteros in the title role, this revival promises to be the most "Arabellissima" production possible.
The realization that this "lyric comedy" could turn into a "tragedy" at any moment, as Strauss himself one remarked, is manifestly obvious. In this late work, the composer finds a new way to treat language, tonal refinement, and expressive power. This ambivalence fits within the history of the work’s reception. The opera was premiered in Dresden in 1933, and instrumentalized for propaganda purposes by the Nazis. Director Robert Carsen doesn't ignore those societal forces at work, setting the action at the height of the Third Reich.
