Strauss' Melodrams

This second season of Melodramas features two works composed by Richard Strauss: Das Schloss am meere (The Castle by the Sea) and Enoch Arden. The former is a short piece of a Gothic nature based on a poem by Johann Ludwig Uhland. The latter, a large-scale work, is based on a text by Alfred Tennyson and tells the ill-fated story of the love triangle made up of Enoch Arden, his wife Annie Lee and his friend Philip Ray.
