Lyric Opera of Chicago

DIE FLEDERMAUS (in German)

Approx. Length:  3 hours 20 minutes

Waltzes galore and more…it’s the world’s favorite operetta, and it’s laughter all the way.

Fledermaus_loc14Two friends angle to “out-prank” each other, a wife contemplates a tenorial fling, her maid schemes to break into showbiz, and Vienna’s favorite prince encourages us all to party on!

“This production is a delightful reminder of how much pleasure can be had from Johann Strauss, Jr.’s operetta…American director E. Loren Meeker brings it to life with energy and abundant charm.” Opera News
