I have been a little quiet on this blog for a while, because I’ve been working hard on publicity and sponsorship, German coaching, translation assistance, dramaturgy, and surtitles for young opera artists company Operantics!
This April, Operantics proudly presents Strauss’ beloved operetta Die Fledermaus. We open tonight – Thursday 20th April at the Independent Theatre. It is a cracker of a show: sexy, hilarious and sophisticated, with a new libretto and setting, transated and transposed by director Ian Warwick from 1870s Vienna to multicultural, decadent 1920s Manhattan.
Fledermaus is proudly sponsored by Yarra Burn Wines. A complimentary refreshment will be served to guests at the Thursday and Friday performances. As Strauss’ unforgettable chorus number sings: Cheers for the King of all wines, King Champagne the First!
Tickets are available here or at the door one hour before the performance. Free parking is available near the Independent Theatre, or the North Sydney train station is only 15 mins walk away. With only four performances (Thursday 20th, Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd and a matinee on Sunday 23rd April) make sure you don’t miss this wonderful show!
