An evening of fun and frivolity

With over 100 performers, the opera Die Fledermaus is back at the National Centre for the Performing Arts.  A production of the Hungarian State Opera, and sung in German with English subtitles, the performance takes one back to New Year’s Eve when Eisenstein is sentenced to jail for punching a police officer. He decides to evade jail for a night so that he can go to Prince Orlofsky’s party with his friend Falke without telling his wife Rosalinde. What follows is an evening of craziness and frivolity. Die Fledermaus will be staged at the Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, Mumbai, on 16 October at 5 pm

A menu for hangovers 

Abar introducing a hangover menu might seem ironic, but nothing is impossible in a world where the number of options for dining out is exploding. On Sunday, one of Mumbai’s hottest bars, Slink & Bardot, will unveil a Hangover Brunch. It has partnered with the Mumbai-based wellness brand REVIV, which offers vitamin booster shots, to design a “drip room” to nurse hangovers. The food options will include poached Turkish eggs, stuffed crab omelette and their signature ceviches. Go on an empty stomach, with ample curiosity. At Thadani House, 329/A, opposite Indian Coast Guard Worli Village, Mumbai, 16 October, noon onwards. For details, contact 9326965643
