This is a DVD from 2009, and in it Renée Fleming appears in one of her greatest roles–the Marschallin, in Richard Strauss’s magnificent opera, Der Rosenkavalier. Her wonderful performance is supported by Diana Damrau, Sophie Koch, Franz Hawlata and Jonas Kaufmann as the Italian Tenor.
Filmed in January 2009 at the Baden-Baden Festival, the music is directed by conductor Christian Thielemann and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.
Ms. Fleming is superb here, both in her singing and in her acting.
Here are Diana Damrau & Sophie Koch in “Der Rosenkavalier”:
