Cast Montserrat Caballé, Otto Edelmann, Teresa Zylis-Gara, John Modenos, Edith Mathis, David Hughes, Angela Jenkins, John Andrew, Anna Reynolds.
Recorded in the 1965 Festival, this production of Der Rosenkavalier was the last directed by Carl Ebert and was hailed as one of his finest achievements. Conducted by John Pritchard this recording features a notable Glyndebourne debut by Montserrat Caballé as the Marschallin with Edith Matthis as Sophie, Teresa Żylis-Gara as Octavian and Otto Edelmann as Baron Ochs.
“The performance provides the kind of enchanted evening which Glyndebourne exists for - when the opera, however familiar, is experienced with a new intensity; when all one’s senses are alive and alert; when it seems that the work can never have been better done. In short, the Glyndebourne miracle - produced by the intimacy of the house, sensitive casting, dedicated loving rehearsal, and brilliant direction in every department.”
