A spectacular new production of Johann Strauss? operetta by the renowned Jeremy Sams sites the action in fin-de-si?cle Vienna.
Jeremy Sams returns to direct a new production of Johann Strauss's beloved operatic confection, with a revised libretto by acclaimed playwright Douglas Carter Beane. Sams places the action in turn-of-the-century Vienna, an elegant, opulent setting with echoes of Gustav Klimt's glittering paintings (and of Sigmund Freud's newly fashionable ideas).
Susanna Phillips and Christopher Maltman lead the sparkling cast, which also features Christine Schaufer, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Michael Fabiano, and Paulo Szot. Adam Fischer conducts.
