Frederic Wake-Walker’s new Ariadne in Cleveland

Frederic Wake-Walker’s much-anticipated new production of Ariadne auf Naxos opens with the Cleveland Orchestra this week, conducted by Franz Welser-Möst. Hanno Müller-Brachmann joins the cast as The Music Master.

Frederic and Video Content Designer Dominic Robertson provide an insight into the concept of Strauss’ opera.

Later this season, Frederic and Franz Welser-Möst will return to Teatro alla Scala with this production of Ariadne auf Naxos.

Hanno will perform concerts with Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Orquesta Sinfonica de Tenerife and will return to America for Matthäus-Passion with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. He will join Sir Simon Rattle and Lucy Crowe in performances of The Cunning Little Vixen with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Barbican and Philharmonie de Paris.

Ariadne auf Naxos will be performed on 13, 17 and 19 January 2019. For more information, visit the Cleveland Orchestra website.
