Ariadne auf Naxos

 

READ WHAT THE PRESS SAID

by Richard Strauss

Orchestral reduction by Christopher Fecteau

 

The wealthiest man in Vienna summons two groups of musicians to perform at his home; a burlesque ensemble led by the saucy Zerbinetta and an opera company to perform the serious opera Ariadne auf Naxos. When they arrive the Major-Domo announces that both companies have to perform simultaneously… or not get paid.
