Buxton Opera House is welcoming back one of the most popular visiting Opera Companies – Opera della Luna – with their production of Die Fledermaus on Monday, May 23, at 7.30pm.
Dr Falke was once left to wander home, drunk, and dressed as a bat, by his friend Gabriel von Eisenstein. To exact his revenge, he arranges for Eisenstein to attend an extremely risqué party at the home of the outrageous Russian aristocrat, Prince Orlofsky. There Eisenstein seduces a mysterious Hungarian countess, who is in fact his own wife in disguise.
Opera della Luna have earned themselves a matchless reputation, celebrating over 15 years of acclaimed productions of Gilbert and Sullivan and Offenbach.
Now, turning their hand to the ‘waltz king’ Johann Strauss and this most sparkling of scores, the entirely new and saucy production is directed by Jeff Clarke and designed by Gabriella Csanyi-Wills (the same team that created the company’s recent production of The Mikado).
Tickets for Die Fledermaus will be priced at £16.50 and £18.50 and discounts are available. Call the box office on 0845 127 2190.
