The Royal Danish Opera Academy performs the world’s greatest operetta, Die Fledermaus. A hilarious comedy charged with light-hearted intrigue, two-timing mischief, and sweet revenge.


With its parade of catchy classics and whirlwind waltzes, Johann Strauss felt so inspired when composing the operetta that it took him no more than 43 days and nights to complete.

After a carousing and high-spirited carnival, Gabriel von Eisenstein, a dandy, has left his inebriated friend, Dr Falke, asleep on a bench in a park dressed as a bat – the laughing stock of the gentlefolk of town. Dr Falke instigates a refined revenge that sends Eisenstein into deep water when at a grand party Eisenstein makes a pass at a Hungarian countess, who turns out to be his own wife in disguise.

Die Fledermaus replaces the previously announced Ariadne auf Naxos.

Die Fledermaus is performed in Danish.
