For a perfect end to the 2016-17 opera season at LBT, we have Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier. It is difficult to overstate how marvelous this opera is. It has so many, diverse layers of complexity: part romantic fairy tale; with young lovers and a cast of characters you will love and hate – admirable, boorish, conniving, ambitious, clever, petty, generous, cheap, altogether human, and never dull. There is one of the great female roles as well as one of the great comic roles in all opera; a pants role – a mezzo playing a romantic young nobleman, who sometimes dresses as a maid; laughter and tears; a fantastic libreto and music to die for. So come enjoy.
