The Rosenkavalier Palace - it stands - just as one would expect - in Vienna, and bears exactly the same name as on 8th October 1777: Palais Auersperg (Auersperg Palace).
On that day it was purchased by Prince Johann Adam Auersperg, some 50 years after it had been built by master builder Giovanni Christiano Neupauer, according to plans by the legendary Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. The original owner was a certain Hieronymus Capece de Rofrano – who’s name immediately transports us directly into Richard Strauss’ opera “Der Rosenkavalier” (The Cavalier of the Rose)! Octavian de Rofrano, the cavalier at the court of the great Austrian Empress Maria Theresia, the gallant suitor with the silver rose, actually existed!
