Glyndebourne marks its own 80th anniversary and Strauss's 150th with the composer's richly melodic Der Rosenkavalier - the first of a trilogy of Strauss operas at this year's Proms. Vienna has rarely sounded more beguiling, more gilded with nostalgia, than in this tragicomedy that combines romance with riotous farce.
