Surrey Opera presented a brand new production of Johann Strauss’s famous operetta Die Fledermaus, with a contemporary twist devised by Director Alexander Hargreaves and English National Opera translation by Leonard Hancock and David Pountney.
Having enjoyed a hilarious round of mistaken identities, flirtations at a masked ball amidst a superbly decorative set designed by Jill Wilson, plus Strauss’s brilliant melodies performed by professional soloists and instrumental ensemble with the Surrey Opera Chorus conducted by Jonathan Butcher. You would have been sure of an evening/afternoon of pure entertainment, bubbling with sparkling comedy like the ever-flowing champagne!
