Presented by Cincinnati Opera at School for Creative and Perfoming Arts, Cincinnati OH

Jul 06 - 14
Ariadne auf Naxos

In Strauss’s lush comedy, a wealthy gentleman commissions an opera as an after-dinner treat for his guests, but not all goes as planned. Presented at Cincinnati Opera for the first time in almost 60 years in a new production.

The show must go on!

A gentleman with more wealth than taste commissions two pieces of entertainment as an after-dinner treat for his guests: a tragic opera and a troupe of clowns. But as time grows short, the ensembles receive scandalous news—they must perform onstage simultaneously! Creative tempers flare, pandemonium ensues, and romance blossoms as the zany preamble to the evening’s performance miraculously leads to a transcendent, touching second act.

Music by Richard Strauss
Libretto
