Concert review: Die Fledermaus by New Opera Singapore

Die Fledermaus is the title of Johann Strauss the Younger's most popular operetta, one that has been translated to many languages and performed the world over. New Opera Singapore's production was acted and sung completely in English, the practice of using the vernacular being widely accepted universally. Thus only a pedant would object to the non-use of the original German, or carp at the title not being the far less poetic The Bat.
