Having scored a substantial hit with Die Frau ohne Schatten, the Met revives its predecessor. Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal were never more openly seductive than in this ravishing, melancholy grown-up comedy about love, lust and the passage of time. Edward Gardner is on the podium, Martina Serafin portrays the Marschallin, Alice Coote (fresh from Two Boys) plays Octavian, Erin Morley is Sophie, and Peter Rose blusters ably as Ochs. Daniela Sindram takes over as Octavian on Dec 3.
