Tragedy and comedy collide when two sets of performers - one an opera company and the other a commedia dell'arte troupe - are forced to perform together. With stunning melodies and relentless energy, the results are cleverly amusing and touching in this brilliant jewel by Richard Strauss. Andreas Delfs conducts this fanciful production by Christian Alexander. -- www.dc-opera.org
