26/29/31 December – The Bat @ Opera de Toulon

THE BAT – Die Fledermaus

In his fiftieth year, Strauss tried his hand at a genre new to him: lyrical art.

Not the opera which seems too risky to him, but the operetta where impressive models and essential traditions do not really exist.

After 43 days of hard work, Strauss gives us his sparkling masterpiece.

Success is there. The Bat  will become the favorite entertainment of a carefree era and, despite historical events and years, will remain so.
