This Salzburg Festival production of Strauss' great work toured the world, and this filmed version was hailed by The New York Times as "Superb."
Schwarzkopf performs her signature role as Princess von Werdenberg, an aging beauty involved with a younger man, Octavian. But when Octavian agrees to assist Baron Ochs by delivering the Baron's proposal of marriage to the beautiful young Sophie, the messenger and bride-to-be fall in love with each other!
Now totally restored, this historic film of Der Rosenkavalier is a shining example of a performance style and a musical art form that is truly immortal.
“Elisabeth Schwarzkopf is a near-perfect heroine in this poignantly comic look at aging and starcrossed lovers. Though this is not a flashy production, it's of such inestimable historical value, and presents this opera in such a glorious performance, that it's easy to overlook some of the technical issues of this Blu-ray. Highly recommended.” - Jeff Kauffman, Blu-ray.com
