Johann Strauss’s classic operetta is a comic story of revenge, seduction and mistaken identity, centred on a high-society party thrown by Prince Orlofsky.
Man-about-town Eisenstein is to be jailed, his wife is being seduced by an old flame, his friend Dr Falke has a plan to exact revenge for a past prank, and everybody wants to go to the party!
Light-hearted and colourful, yet sophisticated, this new production from Olivier Award-winning director Christopher Alden is re-imagined in an Art Deco-inspired fantasy world influenced by Freud and dream analysis. The staging offers the perfect complement to Viennese waltz-king Strauss’s sparkling melodies, including the joyous ‘Laughing Song’ and the memorable chorus in praise of champagne.
The cast includes ENO favourite Tom Randle as Eisenstein, ENO Harewood Artists Julia Sporsén (who returns to the company following her much-lauded performance in the title role of Julietta in 2012) and Rhian Lois, and Olivier Award-nominated baritone Andrew Shore. Award-winning Korean conductor Eun Sun Kim makes her ENO debut.
Co-produced by English National Opera and the Canadian Opera Company.
