OAE: Der Rosenkavalier

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, which he conducted at the Tivoli Theatre on The Strand at the film’s London premiere.

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