Der Rosenkavalier - R. Strauss
Richard Strauss’ light-hearted comedy “Der Rosenkavalier” combines music, literature and customs. In doing so, it paints an extremely realistic picture of Vienna in the 1840s - even if the tradition of the Rosenkavalier, who delivers a silver rose to the bride on behalf of the groom for the courtship, is an invention. For the libretto, Strauss (1864-1949) had once again teamed up with his friend and literary figure Hugo von Hoffmannsthal. “Der Rosenkavalie” was one of the composer’s most popular works, and in addition to the opera, the non-musical play version was also very popular with audiences. Strauss and von Hoffmannsthal had a very precise idea of their characters: be it the beautiful Field Marshal Princess Werdenberg, who was unhappily married at a very young age, now in her early 30s mourning her youth and distracting herself with amorous adventures; or Baron Ochs auf Lerchenau, a nobleman, albeit somewhat coarse and at the same time an outspoken womanizer, who would like to marry the blood-young Sophie primarily for her dowry, but is himself available for any hanky-panky. Not only in terms of content, but also musically, “Der Rosenkavalier” differs greatly from the two previously composed, avant-garde operas “Salome” and “Elektra”; Viennese waltzes and folk melodies, Baroque allusions with Romantic sensibility are mixed in.

La Bohème - G. Puccini
When Giacomo Puccini read Henri Murger’s work Les scènes de la vie de bohème in 1893, he was immediately taken with the freshness, youth, passion, cheerfulness and love with all its joys and sufferings. Puccini (1858-1924) immediately recognized the ideal material for an opera. The libretto was written by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica, who had already worked successfully with the composer for Manon Lescaut. Puccini worked out the depth of the characters in detail in his Bohème: Important moments were meticulously composed and text and music form an incomparable unity. Puccini completely attuned the themes to the action, in which lyrical-sentimental parts contrast excellently with humorous, lively parts. Since he was a genius at writing precisely for the human voice, his operas, above all "La Bohème", were a great success because of their incomparably beautiful melodies. Famous arias like "Che gelida manina" or "Sì. Mi chiamano Mimì" can also be found on opera samplers due to the intensity of the transported feelings or are a fixed component of concert evenings. The stage-effective piece, first performed in Turin in 1896, with its impressionistic features around the poet Rodolfo and his beloved Mimì, who cannot escape poverty and misery in their Parisian attic, still brings tears of emotion to the eyes of the audience today. Puccini’s masterpiece is certainly one of the most original and magical operas ever written.

L’Elisir d’amore - G. Donizetti
Gaetano Donizetti is said to have written his Love Potion in a record 14 days in 1832 - a commissioned work for the Teatro alla Cannobiana in Milan, regularly performed at all the major houses and considered the prototype par excellence for the opera buffa genre. Pleasing motifs, singable melodies and Donizetti’s unmistakable humor, which repeatedly flashes from the score, are responsible for the tremendous and lasting success of this opera. The Italian masterpiece is also ideally suited for children, young people or opera beginners, since lightness, playfulness and the entertaining libretto drive the colorful hustle and bustle on stage in an entertaining and cheerful manner. The action takes place in the countryside: Nemorino loves Adina, who in turn is flirting with the sergeant Belcore. To win Adina over, Nemorino seeks help from the quack Dulcamara. With Dulcamara’s love potion, Adina is supposed to fall in love with Nemorino... after numerous complications, charlatanry and winking ideas, there is a happy ending for the two young lovers. And every opera lover has one of the most romantic and beautiful tenor arias in his ear: Una furtiva lagrima.
