Wagner in Dresden while waiting for Strauss

Since 21 January 2024, the Semperoper in Dresden has been staging a revival of Richard Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde under the musical direction of Christian Thielemann, marking an eagerly awaited debut for Klaus Florian Vogt in the role of Tristan. After an absence of more than ten years, Marco Arturo Marelli‘s production, first performed in 1995, will run until 3 February 2024. But another event will soon be taking place at the Semperoper in Dresden. Richard Strauss, another of Dresden’s great composers, will be in the spotlight from 27 March to 7 April 2024, as part of the Richard Strauss-Tagen in der Semperoper. During these Richard Strauss Days, a number of major titles are scheduled, including the impressive Elektra (intelligently directed by Barbara Frey) and Die Frau ohne Schatten, another great masterpiece where Christian Thielemann‘s direction is eagerly awaited with a luxury cast.
