Die Fledermaus
Operetta by Johann Strauß
in German language with English surtitles

This quintessential Viennese operetta deserves to be enjoyed throughout the year, and not just on New Year's Eve. Eisenstein evades a summons to serve a brief prison sentence by accepting Falke's invitation to Prince Orlowsky's party...
Mozart's penultimate opera, and a fairy-tale work that remains popular with young and old alike. The prince Tamino, with the aid of a magic flute and the bird catcher Papageno as his guide, finds the Temple of Isis where Pamina, the woman he loves but has never met, resides. Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, together with Tamino, undergo tests to prove their virtue and constancy and good triumphs over evil through the power of love.
In order to go about his smuggling activities undisturbed, innkeeper Benozzo has invented the bandit Gasparone. The residents of Trapani have avoided the surrounding forests ever since. One day, however, a stranger turns up singing “I only want gold and precious gems” and courts the widowed Countess Carlotta. Have Trapani’s residents feared Gasparone for so long that he has become reality?

Book author Laurents, lyricist Sondheim and composer Jule Styne combined their talents in 1959 for one of the greatest Broadway shows of all time. Gypsy is based on real people and has even been labelled the “mother of all musicals.” In any case, the plot centres on a strong “stage mother.” Mama Rose wants to see her daughter in the spotlight, though ultimately she stands in it alone.
