Die Frau ohne SchattenDVD - 2012 | German | Widescreen.
Already brimming with symbols and transformations, the epic fairy tale recounted in Die Frau ohne Schatten acquires a further allegorical dimension in Christof Loy's inventive production for the Salzburg Festival. The central character, the Empress -- half-spirit, half-human, and unable to bear children until she finds a shadow -- here becomes a young soprano who makes a voyage of personal and professional discovery as she records the opera. A superb cast fulfils the complex vocal and dramatic demands of the piece, which Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic rise gloriously to the challenge of Strauss's most ambitious and splendid operatic score. Fimed in high definition and recorded in true surround sound.
