WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Glyndebourne marks its own 80th anniversary and Strauss's 150th with the composer's richly melodic Der Rosenkavalier - the first of a trilogy of Strauss operas at this year's Proms. Vienna has rarely sounded more beguiling, more gilded with nostalgia, than in this tragicomedy that combines romance with riotous farce. Glyndebourne's new Music Director Robin Ticciati conducts an international cast, led by British soprano Kate Royal. There will be two intervals of 20 minutes. Finish time approx. 22:40
