New Year’s Eve – just don’t decide too early! In the end you end up at the wrong party, the one with the duller people, the stingier food and, above all, the worse music. Just like back at the turn of the year 2012/2013, they had made a huge mistake. The tickets for the sold-out “Fledermaus” at the Bavarian State Opera had long been secured. But the prospect of the already somewhat dusty Leander Haussmann production made one take the fatal step of selling the tickets on eBay. And to book the “Fledermaus” at the Vienna State Opera instead.
