About the opera Arabella

Arabella is a lyric comedy or opera in 3 acts by Richard Strauss to a German libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, their sixth and last operatic collaboration. It was first performed on 1 July 1933, at the Dresden Sächsisches Staatstheater.
The opera made its debut in the UK on 17 May 1934 at London's Royal Opera House. Two decades later, on 10 February 1955, it was given at the Metropolitan Opera in New York with Eleanor Steber in the title role. The opera has appeared on the Met repertory for 55 performances since that date. However, while it is not frequently given, it will be presented as part of the 2012 festival season in a new production by the Santa Fe Opera.
