Summary "Richard Strauss' Intermezzo is an autobiographical piece--a domestic comedy of marital strife. Set in the 1920s, John Cox's stylish production stars Felicity Lott as the volatile Christine Storch (alias Pauline Strauss), who has an innocent fling with a penniless, young baron (Ian Caley) and then comes to suspect her husband Robert (John Pringle) of carrying on an illicit affair, with ensuing complications."--Container.
