Product Description

Already brimming with symbols and transformations, the epic fairytale recounted by Strauss and his librettist Hofmannsthal in Die Frau ohne Schatten acquires a further allegorical dimension in Christoph Loys inventive production for the Salzburg Festival. The central character, the Empress half-spirit, half-human, and unable to bear children until she finds a shadow here becomes a young soprano who makes a voyage of personal and professional discovery as she records the opera. A superb cast fulfils the complex vocal and dramatic demands of the piece while Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic rise gloriously to the challenges of Strausss most ambitious and splendid operatic score.

Review

The set is stunning, the acting mostly brilliant and the sheer audacity of it all exhilarating. --The Telegraph

A high-caliber vocal cast that provides the greatest Strauss bliss. --Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
