OAE: Der Rosenkavalier

  • Thomas Kemp Conductor
7:00pm, Oxford Town Hall
  • Strauss Der Rosenkavalier

This season Music at Oxford is excited to be collaborating with the Oxford Lieder Festival. This evening is one of two spectacular concerts focusing on the last of the Romantics. Experience Der Rosenkavalier as a silent film accompanied by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

Strauss’ peerless opera Der Rosenkavalier, set in Vienna, premiered in 1911 and a silent film version followed in 1926. At the London premiere, at the Tivoli Theatre on the Strand, Strauss himself conducted his arrangement for chamber orchestra of a suite to accompany the film. We are thrilled to present this delightful rarity set in Oxford’s own stunning Town Hall: an unmissable occasion.
