Die Fledermaus

Don't miss this comic operetta all the way from Australia!
Don’t miss this comic operetta all the way from Australia!

The last Saturday of September can’t get any better as we Penangites are in for an operatic treat. Australia’s longest serving and busiest touring opera company, Co-opera is coming to our shores with its Die Fledermaus (The Revenge of the Bat).

A comic operetta sung in English, Die Fledermaus consists of three acts and will be performed by the Co-opera troupe of 26 performers, including singers and instrumentalists, and backed up by 10 members of Penang Philharmonic Orchestra.

The good folks at the Municipal Council of Penang Island and the Adelaide City

Council joined forces to bring Die Fledermaus to Penang for our viewing (and listening) pleasure in conjunction with Penang and the city of Adelaide’s 40th year as ‘Sister Cities’. Incidentally, Penang is Co-opera’s first venue in its Asian tour that includes Melaka and Kuala Lumpur. 

Be prepared to be highly entertained with this take of the classic Vienna operetta which is set in the roaring 1920’s. Energetic and uproarious, this fun production has the right amount of mischief and vivacity for an exciting Saturday evening entertainment.
