Ever had your friends film your idiotic behaviour – superhero costume and all – and then put it on YouTube?
Follow Falke’s attempt to get back at his mate Eisenstein after one too many in this contemporary re-imagining of Johann Strauss’s classic Die Fledermaus.
Following on from our performances in 2019 we are thrilled to be able to offer performances of our re-imagined Die Fledermaus to South West London carehomes in summer 2021! As part of our commitment to bringing a little musical joy and hopefully a few smiles to carehome residents and staff during the Covid crisis, we are delighted that, thanks to funding from the Postcode Community Trust, we are able to offer 6 carehomes a full performance of our 1 hour production in their carpark or garden this summer.
Johann Strauss’ Die Fledermaus (‘The Bat’ or Bat Man in our version!) is a hugely fun, often silly story with some brilliant characters and very catchy tunes. Our new production is re-imagined for London life today, cut to approximately an hour, and with a new modern English libretto by Baseless Fabric Artistic Director Joanna Turner, and with the music re-written for violin, accordion and bassoon by Leo Geyer.
If you run a carehome in London Borough of Merton or Wandsworth and are interested in finding out more please get in touch!
We also very much hope – Covid restrictions permitting – to be able to offer some performances to the general public this summer too. Make sure you sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear!
