BBC Radio 3 Der Rosenkavalier broadcast

We are pleased to announce that Garsington Opera’s production of Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier will be broadcast by BBC Radio 3 on 17 July 2021 at 6pm, and available thereafter for 30 days on BBC Sounds. The programme will be presented by Tom Service with Fiona Maddocks and will feature Miah Persson as a special guest. 

With reduced audience capacity this season, we are delighted that our continued partnership with BBC Radio 3 will allow a wider national and international audience to access and enjoy this performance.


“Opening the season at Garsington, Der Rosenkavalier feels like a glorious rebirth of lyrical pleasures. 

With Miah Persson radiant as the Marschallin, Hanna Hipp offering a strong-voiced Octavian and the young American soprano Madison Leonard dazzling as a wilful Sophie, the vital love triangle is poignantly conveyed.”
