The tradition of continuing to stage Die Fledermaus is remarkable. Every year on New Year's Eve, the operetta is performed somewhere in Europe. In Fledermaus Forever, eight actors continue the tradition indefinitely on a single night. Just as the characters want to get to the party in the second act at all costs, these players want to keep playing this pleasure play at all costs.

Using any means possible, they adjust their roles, music, and text material to get the story played over and over again. In the drive to keep partying, and keep playing, there is both something beautiful and something very sad. The work Die Fledermaus embodies that urge, both in its narrative and its performance practice.

In short, the ideal musical play is to get one step closer to answering the question: "Why keep playing, why keep partying?"

Beyond madness, tenderness awaits Only humans can fantasise Until it holds from the inside With closed eyes, you can see whomever you’d like There's all that future, still
