A Tale of Two Ariadnes: Richard Strauß Preview

I am getting ready to review this DVD:

Emily Magee @ Zurich Opera 2005

In preparation, I decided to re-view this one first:

Jessye Norman @ the Met 1988

I figured it would be a good idea to revisit a "traditional" production (first seen at the Met in 1964) before re-watching, then writing about Claus Guth's version.   

I'll post my Ariadne review sometime in August. Next week I’ll be considering some Gluck and Mozart operas.
Ariadne mit dem Panther
Johann Heinrich von Dannecker (1758-1841)  


  1. Cool! I'm curious to hear what you think about the Zurich one.

  2. I guess it would not be revealing too much to say that I don't hate it. (mysterious smile)
