Strauss's finest work, Ariadne is a seriously funny opera with seriously beautiful music that considers the competition of highbrow and lowbrow art for the public's attention. The play begins as things are readied to perform a tragic opera based on the Greek myth of Ariadne at a Viennese dinner. But when the dinner runs long into time scheduled for a fireworks show, it is decided that the opera and the fireworks will be performed together. Hilarity ensues as an opera-within-an-opera unfolds.
