Connecticut Lyric Opera’s die Fledermaus
Die Fledermaus (The Bat), a delightful comedic operetta by Johann Strauss, is filled with marvelous music, mystery, mayhem and merriment.
The world-famous operetta by Johann Strauss II celebrates a return to live opera performance in Connecticut. This frothy, delightful, comedy is a crowd-pleaser with catchy melodies and comic antics.
In Die Fledermaus Dr. Falke has finally concocted an appropriate “revenge” on his old friend, Eisenstein, in retaliation for a humiliating practical joke that Falke still hasn’t lived down.
Special guests from across Connecticut will appear in Act II’s glamorous New Year’s Eve Ball, set in Prince Orlofsky’s mansion. The whole lot end up in jail in Act III for a series of cascading recognition scenes leading to the spectacular finale.
A perfect night of entertainment full of farcical elements: mistaken identity, mystery, mayhem, merriment and marvelous memorable music. Celebrate live performance and Strauss’s beautiful score with Connecticut Lyric Opera and the Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra at The Bushnell on December 30, “Eve” of New-Year’s-Eve.
