Notes & Reviews:

This DVD features an ideal Straussian cast and conductor in Filippo Sanjust’s enchanting Vienna State Opera production from 1978. Karl Bohm conducts the Wiener Philharmoniker and an allstar cast, led by Gundula Janowitz as Ariadne and Edita Gruberova as Zerbinetta. This production was acclaimed as "An extraordinary success...Janowitz is an ideal Ariadne and Gruberova is her equal as Zerbinetta...Under Bohm’s musical direction...a joy for anyone desiring to hear Richard Strauss performed with true perfection" (Die Presse, Vienna).
