Friends – who’d have ‘em?
This was probably one of the less offensive thoughts to go through Falke’s mind when he woke up on a bench with a killer hangover. Dressed as a bat. His ‘good friend’ Eisenstein thought it would be hilarious to abandon him here after partying the night before, leaving him to face a very long walk of shame. It’s been a long time coming, but tonight’s the night for Falke to get his revenge, at the most glamourous party of the season. Where there’ll be champagne. Lots of champagne. What could possibly go wrong?
Die Fledermaus, or The Bat, is the jewel in the crown of the real King of the Waltz: Johann Strauss. The tunes stay with you forever. The humour is wicked. The atmosphere indulgent. It is a hilarious farce about men taking liberties, women taking control, and the dangers of dressing up as a bat.
