Comedy Operetta: Strauss’ Die Fledermaus Act II
Why We Recommend it
Opera Hong Kong presents Act II of the popular comedy, in a semi-staged opera performance sung in German but with English and Cantonese subtitles.
Composed by the famous Johann Strauss II, Die Fledermaus was first produced in 1874 and is an enduring and playful story told in three acts.
Act II stages a joyful evening ballroom party scene with guests singing and dancing through the night. Ridicule, a revenge-plot, and mistaken identities feature in the story line.
