PREVIEW: Ariadne auf Naxos

Minnesota Opera’s production of the classic Richard Strauss opera Ariadne auf Naxos opens tomorrow at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts. Here’s a peek at the stunning visual designs by set designer Robert A. Dahlstrom, costume designer Cynthia Savage, and lighting designer Connie Yun (after original lighting designs by Robert Wierzel):

Not all creative teams agree on everything.
However you try, a company might still not perform your piece correctly.
Steinway & Sons is the piano maker of choice for dancing on top of things.
Sometimes you just can’t your cast to take things seriously.
Who doesn’t love fireworks?
Or storytelling.
Look, it was just a wardrobe malfunction.

There, there, we'll get through this.
There, there, we’ll get through this. The bathroom lines at the Ordway aren’t that long.
