Strauss: Ariadne auf Naxos - Harper, Welting, Lindroos, Minton, Evans, Allen; de Waart. London, 1976


Listen to a Sample:



  • This performance of Ariadne auf Naxos manages to tick all the boxes.
  • Heather Harper brings a touch of class to the title role; her silvery soprano soaring effortlessly into the stratospheric realms of Strauss' vocal writing.
  • Ruth Welting's Zerbinetta exudes earthy charm and her coloratura is nothing short of astonishing.
  • Yvonne Minton is an exuberant composer.
  • A young Thomas Allen manages to make a real impression as Harlekin.


  • None to mention.
