Feuersnot is Richard Strauss's second opera and made up for the failure of his first when its 1902 Dresden premiere was a resounding success. It is a lively one-act drama about the ancient Bavarian tradition of celebrating midsummer night with bonres, songs and dances at the summer solstice a work full of allusions. The score has quotations from Wagner and echoes of contemporary composers such as Mahler and Bruckner. Nonetheless, it is genuine Strauss from racy waltzes to enchanting love duets.
Conductor Gabriele Ferro acquits himself well in handling the complex score and keeping the balance between the pit and the crowded stage the orchestra sounds marvelous. "Nicola Beller Carbone triumphs magnificently in the role of Diemut" (Forum Opéra) and Dietrich Henschel, in the role of her suitor Kunrad, sings a "full-voiced baritone" (Tagesspiegel).
