Die Fledermaus, Johann Strauss’s most famous work, without violins and velvet, but with bass, guitar and zany rhythms: director Stefan Huber stages this classic work in a form that will thrill lovers and haters of operetta in equal measure. In this story of addiction to pleasure, malicious glee and wretched binge drinking, Tobias and Christoph Marti (Geschwister Pfister) sing, act and deceive one another as the jaded spouses Gabriel and Rosalinde, while Stefan Kurt stumbles through the action as the permanently inebriated gaoler Frosch. The music and the protagonists whirl through every period, ranging from the Belle Époque to the hippie era.

Zurich Opera House presents guest performances of the successful Casinotheater Winterthur production about which the Tages-Anzeiger newspaper wrote, «There’s also a lot of boozing in the Fledermaus. But the audience does get something of the thrill of the operetta. We became quite lightheaded with happiness, as if we’d drunk two or three glasses of champagne. And we almost kissed our neighbour out of sheer enthusiasm.» Don’t miss it!
