With dynamic singing and tongue-in-cheek farce, this production will not fail to provide the humour and spectacle for which it is known.
What can you do when life is just not going as you want it to? How can you hide your imperfections from everyone around you and, most importantly, from yourself? You can pick out your finest disguise, head off to an exclusive Masked Ball and drink enough that you forget your woes. Of course, everyone has a mask to wear…
This energetic production of Strauss’ ever-popular opera, Die Fledermaus, takes us away from its original Viennese setting and seeks to remind us that the issues raised by the opera are closer to home than 19th Century Vienna. With the young ‘well-to-do’ of Edinburgh invited to a Masked Ball at an exclusive club in the city by the Russian, Mr Orlofsky, an opportunity arises for the characters to forget their troubles for a night. The cracks in these character’s lives are absorbed into the production’s aesthetic; cracks which they will attempt to cover or ignore as much as possible.
This event has finished!
This run of Die Fledermaus has ended, but there are more shows on XTS Pro every week. Click below to check out:
