Der Rosenkavalier is dominated by its female vocal parts, although the music for the men is certainly effective. The young man Octavian is played by a mezzo-soprano (thus, a woman dressed in male clothing, known as a trouser, pants, or breeches role); one precedent for that circumstance is that of Mozart ’s Cherubino from The Marriage of Figaro.
