Die Fledermaus

Johann Strauss
Johann Strauss
Opera Danube is a new operetta company aiming to give a platform for young singers. On 17 and 18 October at St John's Smith Square they will be performing Johann Strauss's Die Fledermaus. They will be joined by the Orpheus Sinfonia, the orchestra which aims to give young professional instrumentalists a chance, with a group of fine young singers including Alberto Sousa (whom we saw in Grange Park Opera's La Traviata), Lauren Zolezzi (whom we saw in the Guildhall Schooll's Pinocchio), Dominic Sedgwick (seen recently in recital), Eli Rolfe Johnson (whom we saw in Opera Lyrica's Cosi fan Tutte), Thomas Herford, Robert Gildon and Kate Symmonds Joy. They will be conducted by Oliver Gooch. There is no dialogue alas, but there is a spoken narration being provided by Simon Butteriss.
