Description

Everything old is new again with love affairs, betrayal, deception and a battle of the sexes, all conjured with contagious laughter, flowing champagne and a classic score.

Composed non-stop in forty-two ‘nights of veritable rapture’ this is the younger Strauss’s most celebrated and popular operetta – intoxicatingly melodious and exuberant. Mistaken identities, flirtations at a masked ball, elegant frivolities and confusions of all kinds provide a hilarious vehicle for some of the most captivating music ever written. A blissful show. The Overture is one of the most popular ever written, with five of the best tunes woven into a framework of the great ‘Fledermaus Waltz’.
