a Bendel bonnet, a Shakespeare sonnet? No, (a) Richard Strauss (poll)!

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 extremely versatile as an operatic composer because of his body of work–the varying themes and treatments employed throughout his operas.  

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?

  1. John,

    Somehow I lost Der Rosenkavalier when we went from saving poll to publishing it, so I revised the poll. Thanks for voting!

  2. John

    Rosenkavalier?

Have something to say? This is your "operatoonity."
