Welcome the New Year in style, to the final strains of Strauss’s famous operetta Die Fledermaus!

Do not miss the unique atmosphere of a gala evening that will be held by the National Theatre, linking up to the successful tradition launched in 1991.

You can expect a big-time artistic and culinary experience, social encounters and a New Year’s toast with renowned State Opera artists, amidst the unforgettably enchanting historical setting of the Czech Republic’s prime opera stage.

The ticket price includes the performance of Die Fledermaus, copious refreshments with unlimited consumption of soft and alcoholic drinks right up to 2.30 a.m. on 1 January 2016, dancing on the stage after midnight and a printed theatre programme for the production of Die Fledermaus.

An ideal blend of Viennese charm, humour and unmatched joie de vivre is the virtue of Johann Strauss II’s operetta Die Fledermaus, an extremely popular piece frequently performed at theatres all over the world. The work was first presented at an opera house in Hamburg owing to Gustav Mahler in 1894, and soon staged at the Hofoper in Vienna to mark the 50th anniversary of the launch of Strauss’s artistic career. Ever since that time, Die Fledermaus has been part of the core repertoire of every large opera company.

The operetta will be performed in the German original, with Czech and English surtitles projected above the stage.

The refreshments is provided by Zátiší Catering Group a.s. See the menu down on this page.
