Is it possible to perform the comic intermezzo “Zerbinetta and her Lovers” and the tragic opera “Ariadne” at the same time? Yes, when you have to. The richest man in Vienna wants it that way. He wants cross-over! Let’s mix up classic and pop – and it works. To the delight of the audience and the recognition of the characters on stage.  One of the handsomest and wisest works of the great Munich composer, Richard Strauss, in a production by Robert Carsen. The joy of Strauss!
