At London Coliseum
Johann Strauss 's classic operetta Die Fledermaus is a comic story of revenge, seduction and mistaken identity, centred on a high society party thrown by Prince Orlofsky. Book your tickets here!
Man-about-town Eisenstein is to be jailed, his wife is being seduced by an old flame , his friend Dr Falke has a plan to exact revenge for a past prank and everybody wants to go to the party.
Light-hearted and colourful, yet sophisticated, this new production from Olivier Award- winning director Christopher Alden is re-imagined in an Art Deco inspired fantasy world influenced by Freud and dream analysis. The staging offers the perfect complement to Viennese Waltz-King Strauss's sparkling melodies, including the joyous "Laughing Song" and memorable chorus in praise of champagne.
