This one-act opera with a prologue, music of Richard Strauss, and Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s libretto combines high art with an energetic buffo, and, in terms of the topic, references to Greek mythology with ludic culture of the Middle Ages. The story about love and its lofty as well as mundane aspects will win not only opera enthusiasts’ hearts over. Kraków interpretation of “Ariadne auf Naxos” was given a positive reception by the critics, especially due to the impressive quality of the cast.
