Description

RICHARD STRAUSS (1864-1949)
OPER IN EINEM AUFZUGE NEBST EINEM VORSPIEL
LIBRETTO VON HUGO VON HOFMANNSTHAL
URAUFFÜHRUNG AM 4. OKTOBER 1916 AN DER WIENER HOFOPER ZUSÄTZLICHE DIALOGE VON MARTIN CRIMP ÜBERSETZT VON ULRIKE SYHA
In Deutsch, mit deutscher & französischer Übertitelung 

  Richard Strauss's Ariadne on Naxos (1916) does not lack modernity to the extent that this opera, with a libretto by Hofmannsthal, Strauss's writer of choice, stages an unexpected encounter between two opposite lyrical styles, opera seria and opera buffa, and moreover draws upon the always delightful artifice of the play-within-the-play. The result is a chamber opera that is as impertinent as it is irresistible.
The richest man in Vienna has engaged two companies and commissioned them to write, at the same time, a serious work and a comic one on  
the theme of Ariadne on Naxos . Eventually, he asks the two groups to unite for a joint performance.
Musically, Strauss succeeds in creating a delicious collision of two genres. His score is parodic, littered with numerous quotes, yet it is also and above all magnificently inventive. The contrast can also be found in the voices: that of Ariadne, the suffering, abandoned woman, and that of Zerbinetta, the giddy and exuberant commedia dell'arte character.
For this production, for which Martin Crimp served as dramatic advisor, Katie Mitchell eschews her customary "live cinema" approach in order to focus on defining characters via their appearance: through their choice of clothes, through their gestures, she increasingly engages with the notion of gender.
These neatly outlined roles are notably performed and sung by Ann Petersen (Ariadne), Roberto SaccĂ  (Bacchus) and Olga Pudova (Zerbinetta) and accompanied by the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg under the baton of Lawrence Renes.
