2019: Die Fledermaus (“The Bat”)

Music by Johann Strauss | Sung in German with English dialogue

Die Fledermaus (“The Bat”) is Johann Strauss, Jr’s most enduring piece and a staple in the operatic repertoire. With beautiful melodies such as the “Du und Du” Walz and gems like “Adele’s Laughing Song”, it comes as no surprise.

Opera on the Lake is taking the story out of 19th century Vienna and setting it in the here and now. Get ready to dive into a world of pranks, mistaken identities, and colorful characters sung by cast of international and local opera stars.

We promise, this is a night you will not forget!
