Die Fledermaus, or The Bat

By Johann Strauss, II

Directed by J. Adam Shelton

Fledermaus is the story of a romantically stale couple that learns to love again all the while playing the fools in this comedy of errors. Eisenstein and his wife Rosalinda, fall prey to a cruel joke by their old pal Falke involving their chambermaid, a Russian prince, a prison warden, and a tenor who canít get the girl. Everyone works his or her way up and down the social ladder in this futuristic production set in 2021. The famous second act masquerade ball is a menagerie theme featuring a ballet performance by Central Midwest Ballet Academy of Middleton.
