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

Die Frau ohne Schatten by Richard Strauss( Recording )

Part poetic fairy tale, part meditation on family and marriage, Strauss and Hofmannsthal's opera features one of the composer's most ambitious and colorful scores. This broadcast was part of a run of performances that marked a breakthrough for soprano Christine Goerke, who delivers a blazing portrayal of the Dyer's Wife. She is joined by an extraordinary cast that also includes Anne Schwanewilms in her Met debut as the Empress (the woman without a shadow of the title), Torsten Kerl as the Emperor, Johan Reuter as Barak, and Ildikó Komlósi as the Nurse. Vladimir Jurowski leads the vast musical forces

Paulo Szot sings Falke, Eisenstein's friend, who sets the plot in motion. Anthony Roth Costanzo is Prince Orlofsky, Jane Archibald sings Adele, and Broadway star Danny Burstein is Frosch, the jailer.
