    A popular comic masterpiece by Strauss - Die Fledermaus

    Following an adaptation of the libretto by Fraser Grant, this hilarious opereeta is being performed with an on stage four piece string quartet and piano wqith excellent solists and local renowned chorus.

    Gentlemen seeking amorius adventures kept 'respectable' wives from accompanying their husbands to balls and parties which were pleasurably decadent. 'Respectable' women could only attend such a ball wearing a mask and play the field without detection. Die Fledermaus, with its glittering and brittle respresentation of that short period of boom and excess in Vienna, also features the well-known Champagne and Brother Mine choruses amongst other delightful music.

    A real bargain at only £18 a ticket for a night of live opera!!
