Opera review: Die Fledermaus
And what can be more enjoyable and appropriate than going to seeing Johann Strauss's Die Fledermaus, a total hoot of an operetta, in its home city of Vienna.
We went to the Volksoper which is a lot easier to get tickets than the Vienna State Opera and probably cheaper too.
It helped that the surtitles were in English but the music, singing and acting would have be enough. The ballroom scene in particular was enormous fun, and there was a great cast of singers and dancers.
Hard to leave without a smile on your face.
