The veteran Austrian director was in Munich last night to see the final performance of a classic Rosenkavalier, first seen in 1972. It was filmed with Carlos Kleiber conducting, with Gwyneth Jones, Lucia Popp and Brigitte Fassbaender.
Kleiber’s opening tempi are worth the admission price all on their own.
Many regard it as the perfect Rosenkavalier.
Never to be seen again.
