Richard Strauss

Rarely produced, yet considered one of Strauss’s finest operas, Danae received a landmark production in SummerScape 2011 by director Kevin Newbury (his first Bard engagement) in collaboration with renowned architect Rafael Viñoly. The opera’s themes of transformation and the acceptance of life’s changes are brilliantly illuminated by Strauss’s orchestral mastery as performed by the American Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Leon Botstein.
