Arabella follows a woman who cannot make up her mind on a suitor and, like most Strauss operas, ends with a meltingly lovely duet. Taped at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1994 under the baton of conductor Christian Thielemann, this production features Kiri Te Kanawa in the title role; her acting is mediocre, but vocally she never forces anything and at least sounds like the perfect Arabella. Wolfgang Brendel does well with Mandryka, who finally ends up with Arabella, and Marie McLaughlin as Zdenka makes a sympathetic younger sister to the heroine

The great Kiri Te Kanawa is radiant as Arabella, the daughter of an impoverished aristocrat who must marry a wealthy man to save her family. Wolfgang Brendel sings Mandryka, the landowner from the provinces who wins her over with his honesty and genuine charm in the midst of Viennese society. Marie McLaughlin is Zdenka, Arabella’s younger sister, whose well-meaning actions cause all kinds of misunderstandings, and David Kuebler sings Matteo, Arabella’s suitor, who realizes he is really in love with Zdenka.
Magazine article Opera Canada. Richard Strauss Arabella. Magazine article Opera Canada. TE KANAWA, MCLAUGHLIN, BRENDEL, DERnesch, McIntyre, Kuebler. Metropolitan Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Christian Thielemann, conductor. DG 440 072 549-1 (2 LVDs/3 sides; 168 minutes). ARABELLA HAS NEVER FARED PARTICULARLY WELL with North American audiences. Even the Metropolitan Opera's Arabella, undoubtedly one of the company's most handsome and appealing productions, was reportedly a difficult ticket to sell. The Met's "new" Arabella was first unveiled in February, 1983, starring Kiri Te Kanawa in the title role, Kathleen Battle as her sister, Zdenka, and Bernd Weikl as the man of her dreams, Mandryka. The late Erich Leinsdorf conducted. Although the production was revived the following season, it was not seen again until November, 1994, when this video was taped for Live from the Metropolitan Opera.
With Kiri Te Kanawa, Wolfgang Brendel, Marie McLaughlin, David Kuebler. It all comes down to a glass of water. I like Arabella a lot, Der Rosenkavalier is my favourite Strauss opera, and other favourites are Elektra, Salome and Ariadne Auf Naxos. This production is gorgeous, with exquisite costume and set design, and the fact the DVD is as excellent as it is with such clarity in the sound and picture quality makes it even more so. Strauss' score is one of his most gentile, and the orchestral playing has such power and beauty. Christian Thielmann's conducting is appropriately sensitive.
