Ariadne Auf Naxos: Comic vs. Tragic
Richard Strauss: Ariadne auf Naxos (Complete)
One World Symphony
One World Symphony Vocal Artists
Sung Jin Hong, Conductor
After One World Symphony's acclaimed success with Strauss' Salomé, conductor Sung Jin Hong and his "lustrous and beautiful" orchestra and cast of vocal soloists continue their exploration of Strauss with Ariadne auf Naxos. Background becomes foreground in this music-drama that intimately captures the world of the stage. Discover how audiences have reveled in Ariadne's brilliant blend of comedy and tragedy for almost a century, in a work featuring ravishing music, bravura sopranos, masterful orchestration, wit, intelligence, and pathos.
OWS: Now with English Supertitles!
As OWS has ventured further into the German and Italian operatic repertoire, we recognize how a thorough understanding of the words of a drama can greatly enhance the concert experience.
To this end, these performances of Ariadne auf Naxos will both feature supertitles translating the opera into English. We hope that you enjoy them and we appreciate any feedback that you may have.
