The opera - money makes the world go round - Ariadne auf Naxos is one of Richard Strauss's most popular operas. With its refined orchestration, splendid vocal parts and multiple storylines, it offers everything a good opera needs
A Viennese man of means is throwing a party for all of his friends. Fireworks and 'all you can eat'. An opera and a farce have been ordered to entertain the guests. To save time for the party, both performances will have to be staged at the same time. A ridiculous plan, but he who pays the piper calls the tune.
Your wish is our command? Not exactly. The Latvian tenor, who is graduating tonight, is not at all in the mood for all those moneyed aristocrats, and certainly not in the mood for the supposedly brilliant Richard Strauss. Money will buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail.
