Though the librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal originally described the project as "a comedy for music", there is also great emotional depth in this stirring portrayal of the delights and torments of love. Enhancing Strauss’s lush, late-romantic music are Otto Schenk’s rich and witty staging and, above all, Carlos Kleiber’s sensitive conducting. Felicity Lott, Kurt Moll, Anne Sofie von Otter and Barbara Bonney bring their superb vocal artistry into play to ensure an unforgettable musical experience.
