Der Rosenkavalier

Wednesday was an opera night
with mom & auntie
Der Rosenkavalier (The Knight of the Rose) is
a comic opera in three acts by Richard Strauss.
It was first performed at the Königliches Opernhaus
in Dresden on 26 January 1911.
The opera is quite long, 4,5h with 2 intervalls
- the stage was a bit contemporary
as can be seen in the photo
- the Marschallin had a great voice!
Sophies's voice was a bit weak,
but it was told before the performance
that she's been sick
