Together with her three nymphs Najade, Dryade and Echo, Ariadne retreats, with a broken heart, to the island of Naxos. When a stranger arrives at the island, Ariadne believes that Hermes the death messenger, has come to get her. The stranger, however, turns out to be Bacchus, the god of wine. Bacchus is fascinated by the beauty of Ariadne and Ariadne awakens to new life., driven by love.
Ariadne on Naxos resulted from the third collaboration between Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal. At the premiere in 1912, the work was considered a failure due to the strong combination of theatre and opera. After an extensive revision, which premiered in Vienna in 1916, the new version is now a part oft he regular schedule in Vienna and Salzburg the opera is part of the regular schedule.
