OAE: Der Rosenkavalier

Part of Classical Season

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment goes to the cinema with this recreation of a remarkable cinema version of Strauss’ opera Der Rosenkavalier.

Roll the clocks back to 1926 for this historically informed performance featuring a big-screen adaptation of Der Rosenkavalier that was once thought lost.

This painstakingly restored silent film captures the subtleties of the opera’s comedy, and is accompanied by a live orchestra playing the music Strauss himself wrote for the film.

Tom Kemp conducts the chamber orchestra – as Strauss himself did at the Tivoli Theatre on The Strand at the film’s London premiere.

Before the film, soprano Miah Persson sings some of Strauss’ best-loved songs, just as they served as a prelude to the main event back in 1926.
