Théâtre des Champs-ElyséesThe Woman Without a Shadow
Part poetic fairy tale, part meditation on family and marriage, Strauss and Hofmannsthal's opera features one of the composer's most ambitious and colorful work. The cast is headed by the magisterial South African soprano Elza van den Heever as the Empress. This opera is one of Strauss’s mightiest and most demanding scores. It draws on the resources of a huge orchestra, a large choir and a fantastic cast. Musical highlights include a tender, yearning duet, an impassioned solo scene for the Empress, and the opera’s ecstatic finale. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting emphasizes the dark undercurrents of Strauss’s opera by offering clarity and richness, coolness and intensity, intelligence and impetuosity.
