Bolshoi Theatre’s first die Fledermaus
The Bolshoi Theatre continues its ’Viennese’ theme, introduced this season by Alban Berg’s Wozzeck, with a production of Johann Strauss’ Die Fledermaus, the quintessence of operetta as a genre and of Vienna as a cultural myth. This operetta, so popular at leading opera houses, with famous singers and very ’serious’ conductors (among whom are such giants as Herbert von Karajan, Karl Bohm, Carlos Kleiber, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Andre Previn) has never been done by the Bolshoi.
The premiere series of performances will run from 17-21 March 2010.
