There is much to be said about the relationship between composer Richard Strauss and his favorite librettist, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, the creators of Arizona Opera’s final production of the 19/20 season, Ariadne auf Naxos. Referencing Composers of the Nazi Era and A Working Friendship, Musicologist Sabine Feisst leads a compelling discussion on the numerous collaborations between the pair, despite surrounding conflicts during the rise of Nazi Germany. The discussion will be followed by a reception with light refreshments.
