Strauss's final opera, first seen at the Met in 1998 in this John Cox production, was revived in 2010 for Renée Fleming. One of the world's great Strauss interpreters, she brought a 'plush and alluring' voice and 'noble phrasing' to her portrayal of the countess, 'a role that suits her ideally' (The New York Times) Fleming is joined in this Live in HD production by an extraordinary cast under the musical direction of Andrew Davis.
