Dame Kiri Te Kanawa leads the comic cast with her celebrated portrayal of Rosalinde, Hermann Prey as Eisenstein, Hildegard Heichele as Adele and Benjamin Luxon as Falke. There are some surprise celebrity guests at Prince Orlofsky's special gala performance party including Hinge and Bracket, Charles Aznavour, and Merle Park and Wayne Eagling in Sir Frederick Ashton's specially choreographed pas de deux.
The stage designs by Julia Trevelyn Oman re-create all the style and opulence of the Viennese Epoque in this highly-acclaimed New Year's Eve performance from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Placido Domingo makes an inimitably stylish British conducting debut:
