    I thought it was a week on Sunday (21st)?

    I guess Slippedisc has truly entered the world of Regieoper when the only identifying information is that the director is Barrie Kosky. By clicking on the link I learned that the conductor is Vladimir Jurowski, who gave The Met a gorgeous Frau ohne Schatten some years ago. Who else is in this cast?

    The live-streaming on Sunday, 14 March 2021, is the introduction to the production – an ‘Einführungsmatinee’ – not the production itself.

    The Live-Streaming of the new staging of Der Rosenkavalier is on Sunday, 21 March 2021, at 15h30 CET, both online ( and on the Franco-German television channel, Arte.

    The online streaming will be available afterwards for 30 days from 23.03.2021 beginning at 19h00. It will also be for free.
