The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
The Courtyard in association with Orchestras Live is proud to present the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, in a recreation of a remarkable cinema version of Strauss’ opera Der Rosenkavalier. Roll the clocks back to 1926 for this historically-informed performance featuring a big-screen adaptation of Der Rosenkavalier that was once thought lost.
Enjoy the big screen adaptation of Richard Strauss’ great comic opera Der Rosenkavalier, accompanied by a live orchestra playing the music Strauss himself wrote to accompany the film.
Once thought lost, but since painstakingly restored, the silent film captures the subtleties of the opera’s comedy of manners.
Tom Kemp conducts the chamber orchestra – as Strauss himself did at the Tivoli Theatre on The Strand at the film’s London premiere.
