Richard Strauss' Capriccio contains text references that indicate an 18th-century setting. Christina's set design suggests that the countess lives in a very grand old chateau – but the costumes and furnishings move the story to Strauss's own time (the opera premiered in 1942). The Countess was played by the Canadian soprano Erin Wall.
