Fledermaus/Flagermusen – Johann Strauss Die
Date: March 30 2014
The Royal Danish Opera Academy performs the world’s greatest operetta, Die Fledermaus. A hilarious comedy charged with light-hearted intrigue, two-timing mischief, and sweet revenge. The operetta is set in Vienna in the late 1800s. After a carousing and high-spirited carnival, Gabriel von Eisenstein, a dandy, has left his inebriated friend, Dr Falke, asleep on a bench in a park dressed as a bat – the laughing stock of the gentlefolk of town. Dr Falke instigates a refined revenge that sends Eisenstein into deep water when at a grand party Eisenstein makes a pass at a Hungarian countess, who turns out to be his own wife in disguise. Die Fledermaus replaces the previously announced Ariadne auf Naxos. Die Fledermaus is performed in Danish.
