André Heller, Camilla Nylund, Nadine Sierra and many more provide insight behind the scenes of "Der Rosenkavalier" from the Berlin State Opera.
Hardly anyone knows the atmosphere of Hofmannsthal's "Rosenkavalier"-Vienna better and can put himself in its place more intensely than the Austrian multimedia artist André Heller, who is working on his first major opera with this production (collaboration with director: Wolfgang Schilly). The stage design is created by the internationally acclaimed painter Xenia Hausner, the costumes are the work of fashion shooting star Arthur Arbesser. The opulent decor is inspired by Belle Époque and Art Nouveau. The Staatskapelle Berlin plays under the musical direction of its honorary conductor Zubin Mehta. Camilla Nylund can be heard as Feldmarschallin, the role of Baron Ochs auf Lerchenau is played by Günther Groissböck. Michèle Losier and Nadine Sierra make their role debuts as Octavian and as Sophie.
