Richard Strauss’s tour de force Ariadne auf Naxos tells the story of a wealthy man who has assembled two groups of performers at his ranch – a group of opera singers preparing for a serious opera, and a troupe of comedians scheduled to perform an Italian comedy. As time grows short, the patron demands that the opera and the comedy be performed together, leading to an array of unexpected – and ultimately very satisfying – results.
