Opera At The Camelot - Der Rosenkavalier

Date: Mon, Feb 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM

Location: Camelot Theatres

Once a month on Monday evening, Camelot Theatres is excited to present a series of Opera screenings presented by Rising Alternative. Each show comes from a different famed playhose from arround the world. The series is a mixture of newer and classic productions dating back to the 50s and 60s. Each show will be presented on the Coachella Valley's widest screen in full digital restoration. Recorded at the Salzburg Theater, Austria 2014 (in German) ConductorFranz Wesler-Most Director Harry Kupfer Beneath the surface of its lightly flowing dialogue and sumptuous music, Der Rosenkavalier explores the progress of human relations, both personal and societal. Beginning with the scandalous love affair of young Octavian and the older, yet enchanting Marschallin, the opera examines Octavian’s metamorphosis, as youthful entanglements transform into romantic commitment. The Marschallin embodies our wistful nostalgia at the passage of time, serving as a counterpoint to the Octavian’s dreamy and impetuous youthful romance. In the world of Der Rosenkavalier, Strauss and his librettist, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, summon a half-imaginary, half-real Vienna of 1740, capturing both the intricacies of aristocratic ceremony and the temporality of human existence.
