Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( Recording )

87 editions published between 1944 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
