Birmingham Repertory Opera Company presents: Die Fledermaus
Fri 28 October 2016, 19:30 – 22:00 BST
In its usual inimitable style, BROC presents a production of Die Fledermaus reimagined in 21st century Britain amongst the mega rich, where lavish parties and limitless expenditure have not bought stability to Eisenstein and Rosalinda’s marriage, or happiness to Orlovsky’s mid-life crisis. At the same time, constant exposure to the pretension and entitlement of their friends and employers means Adele and Falke have had to hatch devious and complex schemes and plans to forge their own path to success. It doesn't help that the prison governor is on the prowl for errant inmates or that Rosalinda’s lover can't stop singing. All of this involves a great many disguises, lies and copious amounts of champagne and is set to Strauss’ glorious music with the quick and snappy dialogue of the Sadlers Wells production.
