One of the good things about Goldstar is that one finds out about wonderful performing arts groups that one never would have known about otherwise. That was the case for the Victorian Lyric Opera Ensemble and its production of J. Strausss Jr.'s Die Fledemaus. What a great show! There was a huge cast decked out in sumptuous costumes, beautiful sets, and, best of all, magnificent singing. Where does all the great local talent come from? I won't worry about it, just take advantage of it, often with Goldtsar.
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’.
