Program notes

Strauss’s madcap Ariadne auf Naxos, in which lowbrow comedy dukes it out with highbrow pathos, gets a hilarious and heartbreaking update in this production from the 2013 Glyndebourne Festival. Katharina Thoma directs a powerhouse cast, including Soile Isokoski as Ariadne, Kate Lindsey as the Composer, Laura Claycomb as the scene-stealing Zerbinetta, and Sergey Skorokhodov as Bacchus, backed by the world-class London Philharmonic Orchestra under maestro Vladimir Jurowski.
