Ariadne auf Naxos

Opera in one act with a prelude Text by Hugo von Hofmannsthal

Premiered December 2, 2018

In German with German and English surtitles

A rich man had a young composer write an opera for a party: Ariadne auf Naxos. But because this tragic opera about Ariadne, abandoned by her lover Theseus, is not entertaining enough for him, he also invites a troupe of comedians to perform their antics at the same time as the tragedy. An impertinence for the composer, but also an opportunity: In this way, the sadness of the abandoned Ariadne collides with the comedian Zerbinetta's love of life. In his production of the work, which premiered in 1916, David Hermann lets the world of Greek tragedy meet the lightness of French rococo. »Ariadne auf Naxos« is an opera about opera, about loyalty and change and about the transformative power of love.
