Just as daylight saving time went off and left us in the dark, and grim superstorm damage led the news for days, Virginia Opera brought us the welcome lightness and good cheer of their current production of Die Fledermaus at the Harrison Opera House November 10. It really is not to be missed!
Start out right, with Die Fledermaus, as produced by the Virginia Opera. Light hearted, free-wheeling and fast paced, under the stage direction of reliably inventive Dorothy Danner, with music by the waltz king Johann Strauss II, Die Fledermaus should be the perfect first opera for folks who have never attended one.
Saturday evening, the Virginia Opera brought back to the Harrison Opera House one of the most popular operettas, "Die Fledermaus" by Johann Strauss II. With all singing and dialogue in English, the large audience could follow every detail of the comical text.
Dorothy Danner has never been one to rest on her laurels. In 2003 she served as stage director for a well-received production of "Die Fledermaus" at Virginia Opera. This weekend, the company is bringing back the light-hearted Strauss operetta, with Danner again serving as director.
