    Inspired by a French work with a libretto by Meilhac and Halévy, who worked on some of Offenbach’s greatest hits and then later on Carmen, Die Fledermaus was an initial experiment which proved to be a masterstroke by Johann Strauss II, king of the waltz and Viennese operetta. This evergreen masterstroke is a sparkling evocation of the Golden Age of Vienna on which he already seems to be casting a nostalgic eye. During a masked ball, guests are swept up in a whirlwind of dirty tricks and lies. Die Fledermaus is a musical gem from start to finish, describing an era and its foibles with cynicism and fondness. We are confident that Marc Minkowski will bring that touch of theatricality which is his trademark in this type of repertoire.
