Die Fledermaus | Thessaloniki | December 05, 08, 11 & 13


First staged in 1874, Johann Strauss II's famous Viennese operetta “Die Fledermaus” (The Bat) has been given a modern makeover by the Greek National Opera Experimental Stage's artistic director, Alexandros Evkleidis, who transports the action from a mansion in the Austro-Hungarian Empire to the home of the Russian consul in Athens in the 1960s, during the colonels' dictatorship. Performances begin at 8.30 p.m. and tickets cost 10 to 30 euros.
