A Bendel Bonnet, a Shakespeare Sonnet? No, Richard Strauss!

By Galegirl

a Bendel bonnet, a Shakespeare sonnet? No, Richard Strauss!

Young Richard Strauss

 

I just saw the AVA’s production of Arabella by Richard Strauss in the City of Brotherly Love–Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I find myself to be a versatile fiction writer because I can and do write in more than one genre–comedy, mystery, tragedy, young adult. 

Surely Strauss must be considered widely versatile as an operatic composer because of his body of work–the varying themes and treatments employed throughout his works. 

So, which is your favorite Strauss opera? So many to choose from. So much variation. But go ahead and take your time. You have all day to choose. Aren’t I generous?
