Strauss Die Fledermaus

A very special afternoon of sparkling Viennese wit and music-making. Mistaken identity, infidelity and excessive champagne consumption abound in this brilliantly clever commentary on the glittering hedonism of late 19th century Vienna. John Wilson brings his trademark verve and panache to what is widely regarded as Johann Strauss’s finest score.

Semi-staged performance sung in English with a new narration by Simon Butteriss.
