The beautiful, much admired Marie Thérèse lives in her fancy flat in Vienna. Her husband is away and she has an affair with the young Octavian. Life is good. When Baron Ochs comes calling, Octavian has to dress up as a woman to escape detection. But when Octavian leaves Marie Thérèse for the young Sophie, she is confronted with the realisation that her life is emptier than she had thought, and that both beauty and life itself are fading away around her

Der Rosenkavalier is one of Richard Strauss’s most popular operas. It is staged at the Royal Swedish Opera by acclaimed German director Christof Loy, who drew his inspiration from 18th-century Vienna, contemporary Stockholm and the Drottningholm Court Theatre. The field marshal’s wife, Marie Thérèse, is played by critically acclaimed soprano Malin Byström.
