Strauss Fantasy 1954

Johnny Green leads the MGM Symphony Orchestra in a medley of waltzes and other familiar pieces by three members of the Strauss family.

Donald's Ostrich 1937

Donald is the baggagemaster at a remote railway station. Part of the latest cargo shipment is Hortense the Ostrich, who is a bit too friendly with Donald, and who eats everything in sight, whether it's food or not (mostly not): a concertina, an alarm clock, some balloons, all of which start reacting when Hortense gets the hiccups.

Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier 1998

Among the greatest operas in Richard Strauss's oeuvre, "Der Rosenkavalier (The Cavalier of the Rose)" spins the tale of the Marschallin (Elizabeth Whitehouse), a dowager struggling with old age. Making the transition more difficult is Octavian (Ildiko Komlosi), a lover many years her junior. This 1997 Palermo production, under the baton of maestro Pier Luigi Pizzi, co-stars Daniel Lewis Williams as Baron Ochs, the Marschallin's obnoxious cousin.

Strauss: Wiener Blut 1994

Conductor Johannes Wildner leads the Philharmonic Orchestra Bratislava in a command performance of Johann Strauss's final operetta, "Wiener Blut" (Viennese Blood), at Austria's internationally recognized Mörbisch operetta festival in 1994. The production -- featuring a libretto by Victor Leon and Leo Stein -- showcases the choir of the Concert Union of the Wiener Volksoper and the Ballet of the Slovak National Theatre.

Strauss Der Rosenkavalier 1960

This wonderful film has had a spotty release history, and has been in and out of print over the years, establishing itself as one of the must have cult items for a certain segment of the opera loving public. With this new Blu-ray transfer, hopefully it can stay in print long enough for fans to gobble it up, for it most certainly is a feast worthy of a Waltz King Richard Strauss. Elisabeth Schwarzkopf is a near-perfect heroine in this poignantly comic look at aging and starcrossed lovers. Though this is not a flashy production, it's of such inestimable historical value, and presents this opera in such a glorious performance, that it's easy to overlook some of the technical issues of this Blu-ray. Highly recommended.

Richard Strauss: Elektra 2006

Elektra, Op. 58, is a one-act opera by Richard Strauss, to a German-language libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, which he adapted from his 1903 drama Elektra. The opera was the first of many collaborations between Strauss and Hofmannsthal. It was first performed at the Dresden State Opera on January 25, 1909. Elektra is a difficult work and is musically complex. A performance requires musicians with great stamina. The role of Elektra in particular is one of the most demanding in the dramatic soprano repertoire.

Richard Strauss - Ariadne Auf Naxos 2012

Flemings voice might have been made for Ariadne and she achieved a great personal triumph in this production: The chief glory of the evening was hearing Renee Fleming, the Straussian soprano par excellence, making her role debut as Ariadne… As the possessor of what is, possibly, the most beautiful soprano voice in the world, she put her vocal treasures in the service of an empathic, nuanced interpretation of the role. From the creamy top, through a rich, warm middle, to the bewitching, darker colours of her lower register, Fleming poured her magnificent sound into Strausss enchanting melodic arcs, animating the sadness, vulnerability, and desire of the bereft princess...
