About the DVD

The first DVD of Renée Fleming in one of her greatest roles. Production by the venerable opera director Götz Friedrich.

This 2007 Zurich Opera production of Richard Strauss’ Arabella is a winner, mostly due to Renée Fleming who traces the progress of the eponymous character from flighty young flirt to a strong, sensible woman, thus moving the opera from what can sometimes seem a sugary confection to an affecting coming-of-age story.
