Editorial Reviews

Der Rosenkavalie, the most successful opera of Strauss and von Hofmannsthal's partnership, is a story of love, lust and human frailty. The story is not complicated but it soars and dips on Strauss' music with Hofmannsthal's expressive libretto. With Barker in the role of the Marschallin, who can fail to be moved by her poignant portrayal of facing the final loss of youth and her young lover? Count Octavian, (Carby), is a young man who has his life to enjoy with no thought of anything but pleasure and the Marschallin's company - until he meets the beautiful and innocent Sophie von Faninal (Pearson). The boorish Baron Ochs auf Lerchenau is superbly exposed by Hemm, his Viennese accent lending authenticity. Led by conductor Litton and staged by Oberle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Delightful! August 14, 2013
By Mr. T
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Beautifully staged and filmed, and with a strong cast without a single weak link, this is amongst the best of the Rosenkavaliers on DVD. Andrew Litton's conducting is a great asset. Some Rosenkavaliers take themselves a bit too seriously, but not this one, which never forgets it's a comedy, and will make you smile many times over. The final trio is heart-rending. A huge success all round.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nope! April 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a scholar or opera critic, just a music lover. Except for about 15 minutes of simply transcendent singing and orchestration, this is a sheer waste of time. First let me say that Cheryl Barker performs with an enchanting, crystalline beauty that perfectly matches her role. Catherine Carby as Octavian has a fine voice but is the victim of the libretto and the stage director, both of whom left her to figure out how not to look like a cardboard prop on stage for about 95% of the time she appears. The idiocy of having a woman of her maturity trying to play a young man of 17 is outdone only by the moron who wrote the part to be played that way in the first place. Even when the opera debuted in 1911 someone in the audience was bound to know that it wasn't 1611! All the technical credits are fine; it's the opera itself that should have stayed in the coffin with Mozart. I'm not a snob, and I'm not an expert of any kind. My advice is to skip this DVD, support your local musicians by buying a ticket to some local performance, then go out for a cool drink with some friends. That's a better way to spend your money.
