This is a great version of Fledermaus. There is great warmth and humour from the cast who know they are taking part in something special. Otey is funny and his voice good enough for the part, the prince is excellent (and a nice change from a woman - watch people's faces when he first sings) Bottone and the rest have a good sense of the farce and John Sessions as Frosch is excellent with jokes about the times (John Major was in the audience) and lots of opera jokes. Describing the fabulous Pavarotti/Sutherland/Horne gala as a 'divagram' still makes me smile. Watch out for the Durante cameo baleet in the middle. Something for everyone, even people who 'don't like opera'.
