An opera in three acts by composer Richard Strauss and librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal. First performed
in Dresden on 1 July 1933. Upon its release, critics accused Strauss and von Hofmannsthal of cashing in on earlier success of a previous joint effort, Der Rosenkavalier, using similar themes and a Vienna setting for "Arabella." The opera was the final collaboration between Strauss and von Hofmannsthal.
