2013. German with English Subtitles.
2hrs 22mins

Glyndebourne's wartime history as a home for evacuee children is the ingenious context for this unclassifiable entertainment in which low comedy and high tragedy compete for our attention, borne aloft by Strauss' diving music and Mofmannsthal's visionary poetry. At the centre is the noble, tragic figure of the abandoned Ariadne herself, in a haunting performance from Finnish soprano Soile Isokoski.
