    Ariadne auf Naxos Lecture by Dr. John Hale in Partnership with the Kentucky Opera

    Wednesday, August 30, 2017 – 06:30 PM – 08:00 PM

    When Richard Strauss started work on the opera Ariadne auf Naxos in 1912, archaeologists were hard at work on the island of Crete. In Greek mythology, the Cretan princess Ariadne gave the hero Theseus a sword and a ball of thread so that he could kill the monstrous Minotaur within the labyrinth and then find his way safely out. On his homeward voyage to Athens, the faithless Theseus marooned Ariadne on Naxos—another island famous for its ancient marvels, and the setting of Strauss’s “opera within an opera.”
