JOHANN STRAUSS’ DIE FLEDERMAUS, GALA CHARITY MUSICAL COMEDY
AT DORSETT GRAND SUBANG

Venue: Grand Selangor Ballroom, Dorsett Grand Subang
Date: 4th October 2013
Time: 8.30pm

SUBANG Jaya, Malaysia, 25 September 2013 – Revenge has never been so sweet, until Johann Strauss’ “Die Fledermaus” or Revenge of the Bat, comes to town. Dorsett Grand Subang, managed by Dorsett Hospitality International, together with Showtime Asia as the co-producer, is proud to present this gala charity musical comedy at Grand Selangor Ballroom, Dorsett Grand Subang on 4 October 2013 from 8.30 pm – 11.00 pm.

“Dorsett Hospitality International's objective to collaborate with Show TIme Asia to bring this famous musical comedy, is to support the performing art for the cultural enrichment of the communities and at the same time to raise funds for the Kiwanis Club of Bukit Kiara” said Datin Jasmine Abdullah Heng, Vice Chairman of Dorsett Hospitality International and the Board Director of the Kiwanis Club of Bukit Kiara .

To be sung in English & themed “The Revenge of the Bat”, the prologue of the musical tells the story of Dr Falke, in pursuing his revenge, plays on the weaknesses of his friends, Gabriel Eisenstein for a “good time”, Rosalinde for a flash new dress, Adele for fame and fortune.

Gabriel Eisenstein is supposed to go to prison for punching a policeman but is persuaded instead to go to Prince Orlovsky’s party disguised as a French nobleman. His wife Rosalinde is enticed to the same Ball with the lure of a new exotic dress and the intrigue of masquerading as a Hungarian Countess. Rosalinde recognises her husband but he falls in love not knowing it’s with his own wife.

Their maid, Adele, also arrives at the Ball pretending to be a famous actress, dressed impressively in one of Rosalinde’s gowns.


Mayhem ensues. The various masks are eventually removed and reality hits home.....but not before the effects of too much champagne lulls everyone into dreamy reminiscences, delivered through Strauss’ ingenious chorus writing, some of the loveliest in all music for the theatre. Even Rosalinde softens her contempt for her philandering husband as they find a new affection for each other.

Finally the ex-patriot Russian Prince Orlovsky’s motto prevails..."Chacun a son gout"... [each to his own]...and Adele is rescued from servitude with the promise of becoming a “truly famous actress”, whilst Champagne is blamed for all misfortunes.

The ballroom stage will be elaborately set up according to 1920s Austria theme. This will be the first time the musical is being staged in Malaysia, with its 11 cast members and 9 members creative team.
