Dresden – 150th anniversary quest: Richard Strauss. In the year of Richard Strauss’s 150th anniversary, Dresden is an appropriate place to embark on a search for his roots. Even though the Munich-born composer (1864-1949) never took up permanent residence in the capital of Saxony, his name is still closely associated with Dresden. No fewer than nine of his operas were premiered at the Semperoper – which will therefore be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth in commensurate style. The Strauss cycle planned for the 2013/14 season includes Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life) on 3rd and 4th April, Also sprach Zarathustra (Thus Spake Zarathustra) on 8th and 24th May, and Don Quixote on 5th, 6th and 11th June.
