Richard Strauss' inventive comic opera, working a retelling of the Greek myth of Bacchus and Ariadne within a tale of dueling musical troupes at an aristocratic party, receives a lively staging at Baden-Baden by Philippe Arlaud. Renée Fleming shines in her debut performance as Ariadne, joined by Sophie Koch as the Composer and Robert Dean Smith as Bacchus. 100 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: German; Subtitles: English. In German with English subtitles.
