Directed by Hannes Rossacher. With Emily Magee, Elena Moșuc, and Jonas Kaufmann. Perhaps you saw the Cleveland Orchestra’s recent production of this Richard Strauss opera. Now catch this film of the Vienna Philharmonic’s production from the 2012 Salzburg Festival. Staged to mark the centennial of the work’s ill-fated debut, the performance aspired to realize “the still-wonderful dream of its creators”—the bringing together of theater, ballet, drama, music, and singing. Conducted by Daniel Harding. (Germany, 2019, subtitles, color, Blu-ray, 193 min.)
Admission $20, CMA members $15.
