Die Fledermaus

Welsh National Opera, Cardiff 20th May to 28th June

Johann Strauss’s gorgeous operetta is like a combination of a Viennese chocolate cake and the Marx Brothers. Both Ernst Lubitsch and Michael Powell have filmed the story under different titles and last year’s production at Opera Holland Park successfully relocated the plot from 19thcentury Vienna to 1930s London. But John Copley’s 2011 version for WNO was one of the most authentic and amusing versions available. This welcome revival includes Mary Elizabeth Williams as Rosalinde, below, Mark Stone as Eisenstein and Emma Carrington en travesti as Orlovsky. Release the bat!

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s June issue: Geoffrey Wheatcroft, Martha Gill and Helen Pidd examine the election chances of the three main political parties. Wheatcroft explores the Tories’ remarkable ability to rise from the ashes and assert dominance, Gill questions why the Lib Dem revival isn’t quite getting off the ground and Pidd examines Labour’s prospects after poor performances in the recent council and mayoral elections. Also in this issue: Christine Ockrent asks if France’s new President Emmanuel Macron can charm the parts of France that didn’t initially vote for him, AC Grayling assesses whether the rise and rise of drone warfare warrants a new ethical code for conflict and Francine Stock explores whether Pixar can continue to captivate modern audiences.
