Johann Strauss Junior’s Die Fledermaus has been selected by the Greek National Opera to mark its 80th birthday this year, to be performed at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens.

The famous operetta was the inaugural production of the Greek National Opera that premiered on 5 March 1940 and a work inscribed in the Greek National Opera’s DNA, interpreted several times and characterized by the music and theatre of post-war Greece and of the National Opera in particular.

The production that was first presented in 2014 at the Olympia Theatre is presented once again, transferring the action of the work to the bourgeois living rooms of Athens and the cabanas of the Asteras Vouliagmenis resort, during the 1960s.

Conductor: Giorgos Ziavras Director: Alexandros Efklidis

With the GNO Orchestra, Chorus and GNO Ballet School students.
