Notes and Editorial Reviews

Created by the waltz king Johann Strauss, Die Fledermaus is the dizzyingly silly story of Eisenstein who would rather party than go to gaol; his wife Rosalinde who is keen to teach him a lesson; and their pert maid Adele, whose eye for the main chance is unwavering.

“(Dame Joan) sings with grace, phenomenal accuracy, humour and affection; and she demonstrates once again her gift for comedy.”
-The Sydney Morning Herald

“…a sparkling, bubbling production of a champagne operetta.”
-The Canberra Times
