This intricately crafted collaboration between composer Richard Strauss and writer Hugo von Hofmannsthal is the perfect Glyndebourne opera. As von Hofmannsthal put it, with ‘music as enchanting in the memory as anything could be; like fireworks in a beautiful park, one enchanted, all too fleeting, summer night’.
