The London Coliseum becomes the home of Johan Strauss’s Die Fledermaus under the direction of Christopher Alden, offering audiences the chance to revisit a classic operetta in a prestigious setting. The operetta has been seen all over the world since it was first performed in Vienna in 1874 and regularly finds a home in the capital, whether at the London Coliseum o the Royal Opera House, and it is likely that this presentation of the classic will be no different when it opens in September 2013.
With Eun Sun Kim conducting and a cast that includes Tom Randle, Julia Sporsén and Andrew Shore, Die Fledermaus will take audiences on a journey that includes mistaken identity and revenge among its themes. Prince Orlofsky throws a party with everyone wanting to go but many finding themselves seduced, the subject of revenge or thrown in jail.
Described as a classic, Die Fledermaus (which means The Bat) was composed by Johan Strauss III with Karl Haffner and Richard Genée providing the libretto. It remains a classic and will surely stand out even in a year that welcomes the likes of Fidelio and Madam Butterfly to the London Coliseum. For ENO fans, it is not one to be missed.
Die Fledermaus runs at the London Coliseum from Monday 30th September 2013.
