Der Rosenkavalier (1962)
A comic opera in three acts by Richard Strauss with Herbert von Karajan conducting the Vienna Philharmonic. The aristocratic Marschallin suggests her coarse cousin Baron Ochs gets her very young lover Count Octavian Rofrano to act as his Knight of the Rose to win the heart of Sophie, daughter of a rich bourgeois. But when Octavian meets Sophie they fall in love at first sight. Conscious of the difference in age between herself and Octavian, the Marschallin muses in bittersweet fashion over the passing of time and men's inconstancy and she yields Octavian to the younger woman.
