The Woman without a Shadow by Richard Strauss is one of the most sophisticated scores for the orchestra. That is why we decided to stage it only after we devoted nearly a decade to exploring the Western European repertoire in order to grasp the style and the tradition of the most eminent composers of the XIX and XX centuries. This opera features a bright, blooming, colourful orchestra, whilst large and melodic arias are complemented by recitatives in a number of unusual ways. In this opera, Strauss had reached some extraordinary depths of sonority and expression. Without doubt, this opera was a top of novelty in terms of musical language of the time. In our days, having become the classical masterpiece of the beginning of the XX century, the music continues to impress with a great effect the composer achieved by realising his ideas.The main opera story as sophisticated as the music does. The way it develops is complicated by appearances of non-trivial symbols, allegories, mixing up between “noble heroes” and “common people”. All this means that you are unlikely to get bored as the story&mbsp;develops. However, beware that the main idea behind all that is as simple as noble: one should not attempt building their own fortune on the others’ misfortune, while the proper dignity is achieved only through self-sacrifice. The production is staged by Jonathan Kent, who is already familiar to our audiences through his production of another opera by Strauss on our stage: Elektra. This production was very well received by opera-lovers in St Petersburg as well as in Baden-Baden and Moscow (within the framework of the “Golden Mask” festival). Journalists noted the unusual staging, scenery, costumes and lighting that all supported the realising of the myth on the stage and creating an environment, which is adequate to Strauss’ music. The same team works in St Petersburg on The Woman without a Shadow production. Full info
