"The Woman Without a Shadow," Strauss's magical fairy-tale opera, stars a pair of childless couples and features a supporting cast of spirits, secret messengers, and disembodied voices — all bringing to life a dreamlike landscape in a series of intimate vignettes. The opera, which premiered in 1919, features a libretto based on an original story by Hugo von Hofmannsthal and embodies all of the dramatic intensity and psychological depth characteristic of Strauss's operatic works. This inexpensive and authoritative edition of the vocal score will prove an indispensable rehearsal and study aid for soloists, chorus members, and pianists.
