Ariadne auf Naxos

Presented by Seattle Opera

by Richard Strauss

THE SHOWS MUST GO ON! A wealthy patron has commissioned two pieces of entertainment for a private dinner party: an opera based on the myth of Ariadne in exile, and a capering troupe of clowns for comic relief. The catch: the two acts must perform simultaneously so a fabulous pyrotechnics display can conclude the evening as promised. Our acclaimed production delivers a deliciously theatrical mix of lowbrow comedy and high art, offering surprises and delights at every turn. (And yes, there will be fireworks!)

In German with English subtitles

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours and 35 minutes, with 1 intermission
