I love Die Fledermaus, it has hilarious witty dialogue, memorable characters, a fun story and above all sparkling music especially the overture, the Champagne chorus and the Hungarian aria. I have loved many productions, I will always have a fondness for the 1984 and 1990 productions, but as well as the one from 1972 this Die Fledermaus is the most delightful and authentic. It features exquisite costume and set design, sumptuous video directing, superb dancing and chorus singing, wonderful stage direction and elegant conducting from Carlos Kleiber. The orchestra are also superb while the dialogue still sparkles and delivered thick and fast. The cast are uniformly great, Brigitte Fassbaender and Wolfgang Brendel are excellent, while I loved even more so the performances of Rosalinde, Eisenstein and Frosch. In conclusion, just a delightful production. 10/10 Bethany Cox
