Ariane À Naxos , 22 January – 17 February 2015


Strauss and Hofmannsthal’s masterpiece, consisting of a long prologue that shows the process of artistic creation at work followed by a one-act opera in which the serious and the comic mingle with heady freedom.

Housed in the spectacular Opera Bastille, Ariane À Naxos is a powerful production with music by Richard Strauss (1864-1949). Ariadne auf Naxos is a radiant embodiment of the illustration of the work and mixing styles of Hofmannsthal and Strauss.

Displaying their poetic art, the artists also offer us a cast of unforgettable characters: the young, idealistic and amorous Composer, brother of both Mozart and Wagner; the luminous Zerbinetta, with her breathtaking coloratura originating in a peal of laughter; and the noble Ariadne, a character from lyric tragedy singing to the stars but shown in the Prologue in the less flattering but so very amusing guise of a capricious diva.
