R. Strauss
A good two decades after “Rosenkavalier”, Richard Strauss (1864-1949) and Hugo von Hofmannsthal put another romantic comedy on paper and onto the big stage with "Arabella". It was to be their last collaboration: von Hoffmannsthal died in 1929, Strauss’ work on the score was in full swing. “Arabella” was premiered at the Dresden State Opera in 1933.
As in "Rosenkavalier," illustrious 19th-century Viennese society serves as the setting for the entertaining love tangle. The retired cavalry captain Count Waldner has his glory days behind him: addicted to gambling, he has gambled his head off. As a consequence, he lives with his wife and his two daughters Arabella and Zdenka in a third-rate hotel, hoping that Arabella will make a good match and thus save the family’s financial situation. But although there is no shortage of aristocratic suitors, Arabella turns down all offers. Much to the annoyance of her younger sister Zdenka, sent to work by her parents disguised as a boy, who recently has her own eye on one of the suitors. Instead, Arabella falls in love with a mysterious stranger. Of course, there is a great deal of confusion, until finally both sisters are reeling in the happiness of love and the father is delighted to discover that the stranger is the rich heir of a former comrade - so nothing stands in the way of his future at the card table.
Arabella, R. Strauss, the 8.

Anja Harteros
German soprano Anja Harteros was born on July 23, 1972 in Bergneustadt, Westphalia. From an early age, her parents encouraged her to deepen her passion for music. She participates in a choir and takes violin lessons. Very early on, her singing teacher advised her to pursue her vocation for the opera.
His career suddenly took off in 1999 with his debut at the Vienna Staatsoper en Mimi in Puccini’s La Bohème, then at the Munich Staatsoper, which in a way became her artistic residence. Anja Harteros has received a great success during her collaborations with Jonas Kaufmann, as in Lohengrin at the Munich Festival in 2009 and in 2013 in Le Trouvère.
