5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Die Fledermaus 23 Jan 2004
A superb production. The singing is wonderful, the acting superb and everyone has such fun that it is hard to imagine anyone failing to be enchanted by this production. The late and very great Hermann Prey employs his Puckish sense of humour to the full and he and Benjamin Luxon strike sparks off each other. The unusual interaction with the conductor gives added sparkle to a superlative performance. Unbeatable!

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale of revenge 29 April 2010
By bernie VINE VOICE
I do not want to go into the details of the story encase this is your first introduction to "Die Fledermaus" by Johann Straus. However it is a lighthearted tale about a man Dr. Falke "Her Dr. Fledermaus" (BenJamin Luxom) getting back in his friend Gabriel von Eisenstein (Hermann Prey) for an embarrassing moment. The story starts off quite simple and gets more complex as it goes turning into a farce, than a bit of slapstick, than into a revelation, and the last laugh.

This is my favorite version of the story is all of the people in here are well known today. During the second act they even deviate from the story to allow a lot of the individual performers to perform individually such as Dame Hilda Bracket & Dr. Evadne Hinge sing "Three Little Maids" from the Mikado, and Charles Aznavour "She"; it is a fun break. Even the conductor, Placido Domingo, gets a chance to enter back here and in several other parts of the play.

Verdi - Otello / Solti, Domingo, Te Kanawa, Royal Opera Covent Garden

I bought this DVD for my mother to replace her worn out video version. She loves it and will not consider any other production. I think that says it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A joyous performance. 22 Jan 2014

I saw this on TV as a New Year telecast in 1984 taking a video recording of it. The "proper" video was purchased as soon as it appeared and has been enjoyed over the ensuing years. Imagind my delight when I found (on Amazon) the DVDs as frsh as ever.
