Strauss – Die Fledermaus

“But what keeps this work alive is the music. Led by chief conductor David Stern, the performance was full of energy and personality, with vigorous duets and trios on stage and another fine outing by the orchestra, with creamy string playing and lively winds and brass. To the company’s credit, they took a traditional approach to the famous overture, leaving the curtain down and doing nothing to distract from the orchestra’s buoyant performance of Strauss’s great concert piece.”
