Ariadne on Naxos – as the other title, Le bourgeois gentilhomme – is the outcome of Richard Strauss’ collaboration with poet and playwright Hugo von HofmannsthalThey were presented as a unitary project, with the original combination of the subject taken from Le bourgeois gentilhomme by Molière and the myth of Ariadne. Both the plays debuted in 1912 at the Court Theatre in Stuttgart, with the direction (and the theatre company) of Max Reinhardt and with Strauss as the conductor; The audience’s reaction towards this work was tepid, and the two pieces were “separated” and revised, thus creating two new successful works and to Ariadne on Naxos was added a prologue.

The 46th Festival della Valle d’Itria develops around the theme of Ariadne, situated between the Baroque world and recuperation of classical culture.
