Director Katharina Thoma

Conductor Vladimir Jurowski, the London Philharmonic Orchestra

Glyndebourne’s wartime history as a home for evacuee children is the ingenious context for a new production of this unclassifiable entertainment in which a low comedy and high tragedy compete for our attention. At the centre of this production from  Katharina Thoma is a noble, tragic figure of the abandoned Ariadne herself, in a haunting performance from Soile Isokoski, ‘with brilliant support from the pit’ (The Independent)

...a terrific evening of onstage entertainment and a thought-provoking take on a work that is 100 years young. For any Strauss lover ... an absolute must
