Der Rosenkavalier Tickets

Metropolitan Opera House

Strauss’ popular comic opera returns to New York in a rich, romantic and humorous fin-de-siècle staging by the Met Opera.

Strauss’ rich and romantic comic opera

Strauss’ most popular opera Der Rosenkavalier is an evening of light-hearted, world-class entertainment at the Metropolitan Opera House.

The aging Marschallin has a life fulfilled by riches and her young lover, Octavian, but when Octavian is sent on an errand by the lecherous Baron Ochs, his heart is stolen by the beautiful Sophie. Will the Marschellin give Octavius up, and let young love prosper?

Strauss’ comic opera is one of his most loved works, with a libretto by Hofmannsthal that combines humor, drama and a fairy-tale romance. Set to music that is both refined and grand, this story of true love and the march of time is presented by Robert Carsen in a sumptuous fin-de-siècle staging.

The Der Rosenkavalier cast includes Soprano Lise Davidsen as Marschallin, opposite mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard as Octavian and soprano Erin Morley as Sophie. Bass Günther Groissböck performs as Marschallin’s cousin, Baron Ochs, and Markus Brück is Sophie’s father, Faninal.

Flitting seamlessly between comedy, romance and pathos, book Der Rosenkavalier tickets to enjoy a dream cast performing this richly romantic and uplifting opera in New York.
