"Die Fledermaus" (The Bat) has endured as a favorite since its 1874 debut , extracting the scintillating elements of traditional light opera and elevating them to another realm of sophistication. The light-hearted Viennese operetta — spiced with waltzes and comic vengeance, and powered by an elaborate practical joke — is set at a New Year’s Eve costume ball populated by characters pretending to be someone they’re not.

To be performed in English, with supertitles.
