New Opera Singapore's Die Fledermaus is easily the funniest live opera production I've ever seen. A tightly rehearsed ensemble where individual contributions shine and still add to the sum of the whole.
As with previous productions, this production is transplanted to modern day Singapore, this time among the media moguls and starlets of the Singapore and Korean music industries. The cast of Singaporean singers (sopranos and tenors) and Korean low voices (two baritones and a mezzo) make this adaptation perfect typecasting. The music is sung in English, with lyrics adapted specifically for this production. The adapted dialogue is a bundle of fun, with situation appropriate jokes aplenty and syncs perfectly with the music.
