An effervescent and sparkling confection, J. Strauss II’s beloved operetta waltzes into your heart with familiar melodies, witty repartee and delightful charm. The cunning Dr. Falke plays a joke on his good friend Eisenstein as a little revenge for a night of carousing gone awry. As his scheme unfolds, subplots hilariously pile up, eventually converging at an extravagant masquerade ball hosted by a Russian prince. Deceptions and disguises among friends and lovers give way to affection, laughter, and-as any happy ending should-champagne for all! Die Fledermaus is the supreme example of Viennese operetta. Sung in English
