| Brilliant production of my favourite Strauss opera
I am a fan of opera, and of classical music and ballet. I am fond of Richard Strauss, Four Last Songs especially is sublime, and Der Rosenkavalier is my favourite of his operas. This brilliant Royal Opera House production does it perfect justice.

The story of Der Rosenkavalier is always interesting complete with well-rounded characters, while Strauss's music is amazing, the final trio is just phenomenal and makes me feel all sorts of emotions especially.

Visually, this production is very opulent. The videography has some very inspired camera angles, while the sets are lavish and the costumes exquisite. The orchestra perform wonderfully and the conducting is excellent as well.

Likewise with the performances. Barbara Bonney is a lovely and charming Sophie, and Anne Howells is very good as Octavian. Aage Haughland is also a fine Baron Ochs, but for me Kiri TeKanawa stole the show as a very poised Marschallin.

Overall, a brilliant production. 10/10 Bethany Cox
