Summary
Director Katharina Thoma sets Richard Strauss's comedy in a country house in the South Downs, immediately before and during the Second World War. The librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthals' conceit, that a hapless young composer has to accept the simultaneous performance of his new tragic opera with a burlesque from a commedia dell'arte troupe, is turned into a touching wartime drama of nurses, invalids, airmen and of painful delusions and soul-searching, before final happiness
