RICHARD STRAUSS: ARIADNE AUF NAXOS

PRESENTED BY OPERA BOX
Celebrating 100 years since this sparkling gem of the Richard Strauss operatic repertoire was premiered, OperaBox presents Ariadne auf Naxos for the first time in WA with orchestra.  A clever combination of comedy and tragic opera, Ariadne auf Naxos tells a story of the competition between high art and popular art.  Artists on each side fight for their work in a hilarious prologue and we ultimately enjoy the beauty of both as they are performed simultaneously in an ‘opera within the opera’.  Conducted by Christopher Dragon and directed by Kathryn Osborne.
