Renée Fleming finally appears on DVD in one of her greatest roles - the Marschallin, in Richard Strauss's magnificent period-comedy of ever-changing love, Der Rosenkavalier. Her peerless performance is supported by "a galactic cast" (Thielemann), which includes Diana Damrau, Sophie Koch and Franz Hawlata.

Renée's eminent Straussian collaborator on her recent Four Last Songs album, Christian Thielemann, joins her once again, conducting the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra.

Jonas Kaufmann makes a guest appearance as the Italian Tenor.

For this filming, Baden-Baden Festival Opera is re-staging the celebrated Herbert Wernicke production, already seen in Salzburg (1995) and Paris (1998) - a stylish pastiche of vast mirrors, Viennese Baroque decorations, Hollywood-esque staircases and early 20th century evening wear.
