Abstract:Chapter one presents a broad overview of Strauss's creative process. Discussion of relevant scholarship viewed through the lens of Der Rosenkavalier serves as a springboard for chapter two, which documents the extant compositional manuscripts for the opera. Appendix A supplements this chapter by offering an annotated catalogue of the sketches held at the Richard-Strauss-Archiv (Garmisch) and at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Munich), while Appendix B presents a chronology of the opera's genesis. This sets the stage for the remaining three chapters, which evaluate various passages in the opera from the perspective of Hofmannsthal's evolving drafts of the libretto and Strauss's sketches. The dissertation concludes by assessing some of the ways Der Rosenkavalier points forward to further experimentation in Strauss's later operas.
