NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

 

Die Fledermaus opens an important chapter in the history of musical theatre: this is not an operetta but a proper Viennese comic opera, unique for its musical and theatrical complexity. Staged for the first time at La Scala, this masterpiece is conducted by Zubin Mehta – Viennese by adoption and five times conductor of the New Year’s Concert in Vienna –, while the direction is entrusted to Cornelius Obonya, a leading figure in the theatre world, who hails from an illustrious Austrian theatrical dynasty. With Eva Mei, Peter Sonn and Markus Werba in the cast, and Paolo Rossi in the comic spoken part of the jailer Frosch, the production is animated by the choreography of Heinz Spoerli.
