Die Frau ohne Schatten

Die Frau ohne Schatten

For the first time Richard Strauss' masterpiece from 1919, Die Frau ohne Schatten, is staged in Gothenburg. It has been called his greatest, most complex and fascinating opera, and it is high time that the Göteborg Opera offers it to its audience. This is the fourth Strauss opera that has been staged here, after Salome, Elektra and Der Rosenkavalier.

We are again guested by renowned director Yannis Houvardas, who writes of the production: ”The story is told as a dream. A woman in a loveless marriage lives as if in a dream, painfully aware of her inability to bear children; she wakes up, not necessarily happier, but as a mature and complete human being.”
