The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts.
The Little Prince is actually a tale for all ages. This beautiful new production uses inventive puppets, live actors, original music and magnificent design to bring to life the heart-warming story of the Little Prince who gains rare and unique insights into love, loss, and laughter. The Little Prince is a multi-layered visual feast to awaken the child tucked away inside us all.
