Opera Della Luna - Die Fledermaus

EVENT INFORMATION

  • Date: Thursday 5 May 2011
  • Time: 7.30pm
"Jeff Clarke's vivacious production is truly delightful. Mischievous and witty and the outfits have all the razzle-dazzle of Versace." - FINANCIAL TIMES Die Fledermaus is surely one of the world's most famous operettas, and it now gets a glittering new look by the country's best small-scale operetta company. Dr Falke was once left to wander home, drunk, and dressed as a bat, by his friend Gabriel von Eisenstein. To exact his revenge he arranges for Eisenstein to attend an extremely risqué party at the home of the outrageous Russian aristocrat, Prince Orlofsky, and there Eisenstein seduces a mysterious Hungarian countess, who is in fact his own wife in disguise. This entirely new, saucy, production is directed - with his own new translation - by Jeff Clarke, and designed by Gabriella Csanyi-Wills: the team that created the company's recent wonderful production of The Mikado. "Brilliant, not to mention hilarious. The most enjoyable evening for ages." - OPERA NOW
