Ariadne auf Naxos by Strauss @Santa Fe Opera

July 28 - August 23

still from madame butterfly santa fe opera - Ariadne auf Naxos by Strauss @Santa Fe Opera

It isn’t easy being the richest man in Vienna, especially when you’re hosting the party to end all parties. His Major-Domo dishes the dirt: “Can you believe it? My master plans the perfect evening—a sumptuous dinner and spectacular fireworks, to begin promptly at nine, with a little theatrical diversion he has so generously commissioned in between—a brand-new opera seria, followed by a comedy troupe, to cleanse the musical palate. And what happens? Total chaos!

Written for 16 soloists and a Mozartian orchestra of 36 players, Ariadne auf Naxos is Strauss’s most enchanting and wittiest opera, a comic collision of idealism and reality, of backstage grit and onstage glory. Vocal and theatrical fireworks abound in this new production by Tim Albery, whose previous Santa Fe successes include Arabella, 2012; La Finta Giardiniera, 2015.
