Trivia / Der Rosenkavalier

  • Working Title: The working title was Der Ochs auf Lerchenau. Strauss didn't care much for the title Hofmannsthal suggested: the composer wanted to have his favourite character's name in there. However, everyone urged him to change the title to Der Rosenkavalier and Strauss finally gave in, saying, "Also Rosenkavalier, der Teufel hol ihn."note
