The Novaya Opera Theatre has staged Strausss operetta.The three spaces in which the action takes place the dressing room, the ball room and the prison are variations of the same room.The next morning, Falke was surrounded by all the Sunday promenaders and the worse embarrassment was that he had to go home in his bat costume.As well as charming melodies, witticisms, piquant situations, eccentric proceedings, a dramatic upturn and a happy end.We will know if he has got his plan implemented.The Dutch stage director and set designer Michiel Dijkema has defined his objective in the following way: It often happens that when you ask people who have just seen a production of Die Fledermaus why, in fact, it is called so, they find difficulty.In my version of the operetta the central figure is Doctor Falke.Is going to bring luck to a player.He takes vengeance on his former friend Eisenstein.The oriental hint which you may enjoy playing.The resemblance between a roulette wheel and an umbrella cupola is striking the eye.The set design is ingenious and spectacular.A special, surrealistic effect is created in the ball scene when all things are topsy-turned, with the chandelier on the floor and dummies hanging from the ceiling, resembling a group of bats!Since then he has been called Doctor Bat.Michiel Dijkema and his colleague, German costume designer Claudia Damm, have sought to project an image that would be historical and, at the same time, close to the present-day people; therefore the male characters are wearing tails, while the girls are dressed in tutus.In the context of the game the image of Japanese umbrella?
