Acclaimed as the leading Strauss soprano of today, Renée Fleming stars in Götz Friedrich's echanting Zürich staging of Strauss's Viennese opera. The composer wrote some of his most meltingly memorable music for Arabella, who - against the wishes of her improverished aristocratic parents - is determined to marry for love, not wealth. When she gives her heart to the mysterious Mandryka, a series of misunderstandings puts their love to the test.
