An Elaborate Staging 

When: Wed., May 27 2015
Franz Welser-Möst leads the Cleveland Orchestra in Richard Strauss’s opera about Daphne, “a young woman who must choose between the love of men and her love for nature.” Like last season’s innovative and critically acclaimed production of The Cunning Little Vixen, which was even written up in the New York Times, the staging is rather elaborate. Director James Darrah will transform the concert hall into “a tableau of nature with staging and costumes inspired by ancient Greek theater.” A dancer and a men’s chorus will join the cast of internationally renowned singers. The Orchestra’s first-ever performances of this opera take place at 7:30 p.m. tonight and at 8 on Saturday night. Tickets start at $71. (Niesel)
