Composer: Richard Strauss

From the still-unsurpassed violence of Elektra to the quiet and witty leave-taking in Capriccio, Richard Strauss continually renewed both his own style and the genre of opera itself over the course of a career spanning half a century, during which he never lost his love for the human voice – especially soprano – or a keenly honed instinct for the marriage of music and drama. Here are ten of his greatest operas, featuring the greatest Straussian singers and conductors of the last half-century.
