The irrepressible, irresistible Sarah Connolly as Octavian
REVIEW of THIS 2012 production from Mark Ronan’s Theatre Reviews
English National Opera is reviving it’s 2008 David McVicar production of Der Rosenkavalier for seven performances between January 28th and February 27th 2012 Bookings
Sarah Connolly – ‘one of the glorious Octavians of our time’ (Observer) – returns as the ardent young ‘Knight of the Rose’, with Sophie Bevan as the innocent Sophie. Amanda Roocroft makes her role debut as the Marschallin, the worldly ‘older woman’ who graciously cedes her teenage lover to a younger rival. Also returning from the 2008 cast are Sir John Tomlinson as Baron Ochs and Andrew Shore as Faninal.
Can there be a down side? … Yes. It’s in English!
