Director, Christopher Alden
Strauss’s popular operetta returns to English National Opera (ENO) after 20 years, in a new production by world-renowned opera director Christopher Alden.

Die Fledermaus
Johann Strauss's classic operetta Die Fledermaus, is a comic story of revenge, seduction and mistaken identity, centred on a high-society party thrown by Prince Orlofsky. Man-about-town Eisenstein is to be jailed, his wife is being seduced by an old flame, his friend Dr Falke has a plan to exact revenge for a past prank, and everybody wants to go to the party!
Light-hearted and colourful, yet sophisticated, this new production from Olivier Award-winning director Christopher Alden is re-imagined in an Art Deco-inspired fantasy world influenced by Freud and dream analysis. The staging offers the perfect complement to Viennese waltz-king Strauss's sparkling melodies, including the joyous 'Laughing Song' and the memorable chorus in praise of champagne.

Date: September 30, 2013 ~ November 02, 2013
Venue: English National Opera, London Coliseum, London
