The “Rosenkavalier” and “La Damnation de Faust” at the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden

With Richard Strauss’ Rosenkavalier and Hector Berlioz’ La Damnation de Faust, the 2015 Easter Festival in Baden-Baden featured brilliantly orchestrated music drama works. In Berlioz’ setting of Goethe, the mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato was singled out for particular praise.
